Beautiful 19th C. Maori Hei Tiki with archaic tiki design
|( ID: o285 )|
A beautifully carved 19th C. Maori hei tiki. This example is in very nice condition with very fine stone and rayskin carving attributes, see how the holes have been made from carving on either side as opposed to being drilled straight through. The eyes have paua, abalone shell, inserts and are in quite nice condition. Very good size as well as at 2 1/2" X 2".
