 Tiki statue are carved in wood, they represent deities or Gods from the Hawaiian and Polynesian Culture.

The Tiki is a very ancient symbol and is by far the least understood so there are a number of legends about its meaning.
Some say he came from the stars and that he was the first man of the world. He is also often depicted with webbed feet which suggests a strong link to the creatures of the sea.
Tiki was respected 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 regarded as a good luck charm when worn and in some areas is also regarded as a fertility symbol.

 They are used as home decor and they also serve various purposes such as warding off evil spirits and increasing the owners fertility! They hold such high significance in the Polynesian culture that they, along with other Tiki sculptures, have become defining symbols of the Polynesian culture.

Their is four main gods. Kane is the god of sunlight, and natural life; Ku is the god of war; Lono is the god of peace, winds, rain, sports and fertility; Kanaloa is the god of the ocean. Each Tiki God holds a different meaning.

personal Story:

If you own a Tiki, you need to treat it as if it where alive because they seems to be. I have a friend in Tahiti who own an ancient tiki statue. One day she left her Tiki in the Sun and she found herself with a sun burn the same evening....
