Nicely detailed Hei Tiki made from stunning TangiwaiPounamu, very nice chunky piece. Hand carved locally by Malcolm Hooper.
Hei Tiki is a symbol of fertility and good luck. It is also said to bring the wearer strength of character, allowing one to be loyal, clear headed and perceptive. The Tiki will often be depicted with its tongue poking out for protection.
Pounamu or Greenstone is regarded as a stone sacred to the gods by the Maori of New Zealand. As a Taonga -meaning treasured, and it should be worn with respect and pride.
