These beautifully hand-crafted and carved wooden Tiki masks are created in Indonesia, and all are slightly original due to their handmade nature. Each piece is unique in it’s symbolism as is the traditional way.
Tiki masks were used to stand in for deities, protect their users from evil spirits or even increase the mask wearers’ fertility and luck. Traditional polynesian Tiki’s all have different meanings in their faces so if the eyes are looking up the tiki will offer protection. The eyes looking down however brings good luck. The mouth of the tiki can be smiling to show happiness or open to bring peace. If the tongue is sticking out that is the sign of a warrior.
Sold Individually, when you recieve your parcel slight variations from images may be seen, as these are hand crafted pieces. You will recieve a mask very similar to your choosen design, but not exactly. Colours are created in the tradional way using seasonally available painting materials and thus, we cannot possibly exactly match the photograph of the item. We can say however that we know you’ll be delighted with your purchase as these are authentic genuine articles.
Photographs are numbered accordingly.
Hover your mouse over the pictures under the main image to highlight the mask number in each photograph. If a number is followed by another number in brackets, for example: 1(2) it means this is the second picture of mask number one.
Alternatively, each mask is numbered at the bottom of the actual mask in the photographs.
