Hei Tiki Meaning:
Through birth, a child enters Te Ao Mārama - the world of light and knowledge, with intimate knowledge and mana. The tiki, in its fetal form, manifests that intrinsic worth. Tiki is the teacher of clarity. Imbued with all human knowledge, it is the incarnation of the entire human race.
