The Symbology of Maori Tiki...
The name Tiki (penis) is one which is applied to stone statues elsewhere in Polynesia. It is the name of a male demigod which appears often in Polynesian mythology and is unquestionably ancient. The symbology of Maori Tiki has been much debated. They are thought of by some as fertility symbols, but strangely given their name, the detail of many of them shows female reproductive organs. One theory interprets detail on the New Zealand Tikis as representing common birth deformities (club foot etc.) and suggests they are a talisman to protect against such things.
Worn By Maori On Ceremonial Occasions...
Tiki remain prestige items in New Zealand today; heirlooms in Maori families and occasionally in Pakeha (non-Maori) ones as well. They are worn by Maori on ceremonial occasions and occasionally by Pakeha too where they have acquired them through some historical event.
Sometimes they are ceremonially displayed rather than worn. Not all of these Tiki are ancient. Some are 19th century commercial ones.
Old Tiki are vigorously competed for in New Zealand auctions and command high prices.
Every carving is supplied with a traditional waxed braid cord with a loop and bone toggle fitted.
It also comes with a traditional woven flax presentation case and information on the meaning of the design.
Average size: is 2 1/4 inches (55 mm) long.
