'Tiki' personifies primeval man, the first man created, much like a Maori Adam. It is the chief son of Rangi and Papa (the Sky Father and the Earth Mother). Some tiki serve as dwelling places for ancestral spirits, while others are vessels for gods and supernatural beings. The design of the tiki is extremely important. Its orientation, head placement, and patterning have specific spiritual meanings. The poked tongue for instance is said to be associated with protective magic. When worn around the neck, hei tiki made from pounamu are valued as heirlooms for a few reasons. The material is precious, some of it is rare, and crafting it is a very labour intensive process. The spiritual value of hei tiki increases with successive ownerships as it’s passed down through the family

I can add an inscription on the back of my painting for no extra charge (ie. best wishes, meaning of painting, personalized message).
