A bold hand carved vintage wood Hawaiian Tiki God figure that was made in Philippines for the Hawaii tourist trade. The carving measures about 10 1/2" tall by 3 1/2" wide by 3" deep and is heavy for the size being of a relatively dense wood. The condition of the carving is excellent with just a few light scratches normal for the age, it is striking and large enough to have presence, it would be perfect as a decorative accent, perhaps on a wet bar. See photos for more detail.

In Māori mythology, Tiki is the first man created by either Tūmatauenga or Tāne. He found the first woman, Marikoriko, in a pond; she seduced him and he became the father of Hine-kau-ataata. By extension, a Tiki is a large or small wooden or stone carving in humanoid form, carvings of Tiki's represent deified ancestors found in most Polynesian cultures.
