A range of beautiful Hei tiki designs made by our talented local carvers from New Zealand greenstone. The Tiki is a very ancient symbol and is by far the least understood. Perhaps the most accepted meaning of the Tiki is fertility, often carved with the hands placed on the loins. Tiki was also respected as the teacher of all things and the wearer of this symbol is therefore seen to possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character. Another property of Hei tiki is believed to be that it is a talisman to bring good luck and keep evil spirits away from the wearer.
