Indonesia - non-CITES species
Swordfish bill / tusk hand carved with traditional Maori Wheku and Tiki carving. Wheku, meaning 'carved face', depicts the face of an ancestor. The Wheku is generally found at the apex of the gable on a Wharenui, the Maori meeting house, and symbolises an important ancestor after whom the house was named. These come in many designs and are individually wonderful pieces to wear - that are visually striking pieces and collectively tell the wonderful history of the South Pacific.The Tiki is a very ancient symbol and, while quickly recognised, is by far the least understood. There are a number of legends in relation to its meaning. Some say the Tiki came from the stars and that he was the first man of the world. Other theories suggest that tiki represents the human embryo - forming life. He is believed to have a strong link to the sea - often being depicted with webbed feet. Perhaps the most accepted meaning of the Tiki is fertility. Often carved with hands placed on the loins in what is believed to be a direct reference to fertility. Tiki was respected as the teacher of all things and the wearer of this symbol is seen to possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character. Tiki is also believed to bring good luck and keep evil spirits away. If you watch some 'kapa haka' videos on youtube (here's a link: Kapa haka ) you will see that tiki are worn by men and women. They come in many different styles and are carved in jade and bone.
