Polynesian Tiki Mask – Small

The word Tiki refers to large wooden and stone carvings of humanoid forms originating from Polynesian cultures found in the South Pacific. They are found as far apart as New Zealand, Easter Island and Hawaii. The fearsome god-like carvings served to mark boundaries around significant or ceremonial sites and are often grotesque in appearance.

In the early 20thC, ‘Tiki Culture’ arose in North America. Tiki heads and paraphernalia were used by restaurants and clubs to evoke feelings of relaxation; think Mai Tais, flowery shirts and sunny beaches.
