Maori unique handcrafted jewelry
The Tiki is a very ancient symbol and by far the least understood. A number of legends exists about its origin and meaning. It is said he came from the stars and was the first man of the world. Often pictured with webbed feet as to indicate an aquatic origin.
The Tiki was regarded as the teacher of all things and the wearer of this symbol is therefore seen to possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character. The Tiki is also considered a good luck charm when worn and in some areas is also a fertility symbol.
This is an authentic Maori handcrafted carved bone Tiki necklace. 2 inches long. It has two beautiful paua shell inlays for the eyes. The bone is polished to the point that it feels like porcelain, only warmer to the touch. Get ready to answer a lot of questions about this pendant! Information on the meaning of the design are included.
