Hand Carved Tiki Wall Hanging


Hand Carved Tiki Wall Hanging. The tiki is in Maori mythology, the symbol of New Life. Tiki were carved from pounamu (New Zealand Greenstone) and were highly prized heirlooms. They are still passed from generation to generation as a sign of family unity. This tiki was hand carved by a master carver in Rotorua, New Zealand from New Zealand Matai. There is a hole on the rear of the piece for easy wall hanging.

Size: The Tiki measures 225mm (8 7/8 inches) tall, 135mm (5 1/4 inches) wide, 20mm (3/4 inches) deep.

Weight: 0.22Kg / 0.49 lbs.

This Tiki carving was hand carved in Rotorua, New Zealand. This high quality carving is shaped and carved using New Zealand native Matai.

The Carving Process

Initially the talented carver shapes the timber to approximate dimensions. Then the piece is hand carved using traditional and authentic designs which have been passed down through generations. These design depict tribal and family details.

Once the carving is finished, the piece is then dipped into a stain and sprayed with lacquer ensuring the preservation of the timber. The final step of the process is to add the carvings embellishments such as paua eyes, greenstone, feathers and binding if necessary.

The carvers of these pieces have been trained through Maori carving institutions and have spent a long time perfecting their skills making it possible for them to carve to the detail required to ensure each piece is authentic and that each piece represents a part of the history of Maroidom.
