Entirely carved by hand!
Our craftsman makes this tiki exactly as the ancients did: he sculpts it directly into a coconut tree trunk. It is this artisanal origin that gives this inimitable style and realism to the "Tiki Kanaloa".
If you expose this statue outdoors, in the garden for example, it will patinate over time and become more and more beautiful: The coconut wood will crack, gray and take on a "driftwood" shade. In a few years, your Tiki will sport a "vintage" look like those of Tikis Bars Hawaiians!
Tiki Kanaloa: the god of the marine worlds
This statue represents "Tiki Kanaloa": the god of the marine worlds. He was the closest companion of Kane, the god of creation, and was endowed with incredible healing powers. For this reason, believers believe that a representation of Kanaloa provides protection against diseases.
