Hei tiki are a complex form and one of our most challenging designs to carve by hand, requiring an artist to work with precision and skill. Traditionally passed from parent to child, or used for protection and good luck, the hei tiki is said to link the past, present and future. This dark green New Zealand pounamu tiki was crafted by local Rotorua artist Akapita Scally from an exceptional piece of stone with yellow hues which run down one side of the piece. Etched detailing runs throughout the design to create the features of the tiki and the stone is inlaid with glowing paua shell eyes.
