This stunning & unique Hei Tiki Sculpture has been designed & carved by the hands of New Zealand Artist - Alex Sands. Pounamu is a true taonga (treasure) - the greenstone/jade has been sourced from New Zealand's West Coast of the South Island. This sculpture has been accentuated with Paua Shell details & sits upon an NZ sourced timber.
Hei Tiki Meaning: Through birth, a child enters Te Ao Mārama - the world of light & knowledge, with intimate knowledge & 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.
