Framed Hei Tiki
A contemporary Maori design, crafted from plantation grown gaboon using laser technology. This piece of art boasts super fine detail, paua inlay and is mounted on an earth toned background inside a custom glass covered shadow box frame. Each piece is individually signed by the artist, Mike Carlton, and comes complete with wall mount and related story to back.
size: 170mm (6.7 inches) x 222mm (8.75 inches) x 28mm (1.1 inches)
Mike Carlton is of Ngati Whakaue descent (Te Arawa sub-tribe) with affiliations to the Hinemoa Point Marae in Rotorua, New Zealand.
This artwork is a contemporary representation of Hei-Tiki, crafted from plantation grown hardwood and embellished with paua shell. It personifies primeval man. The tilted head symbolises clear thinking, the hands (strength), the mouth (communication), the heart (love) and the loins (fertility).
If one wears a Hei-Tiki, the wearer is assumed to be of strong character, clear thinking, perceptive, loyal and knowledgeable.
