PAIR OF KU & KUKA 'ILIMOKU 24" - Hawaii MUSEUM HOME DECOR
Here is a beautiful pair of Tikis measuring 24 inches tall, made out of solid Acacia wood (Made in Hawaii).
Tiki Ku is mostly known as the Tiki of War, but Ku is so much more complex. He is the god of fishing, who built the first fishpond in Hana. He is the god of husbandry and farming, represented by the 'o'o , the digging stick, which penetrates the earth and makes it fertile. He is the god of war and conflict, but also of resolution and healing."
Tiki Kuka'Ilimoku, personal God of King Kamehameha The Great. Kamehameha gave this god credit for his success in uniting the islands of Hawai'i into one Kingdom.
This is a beautiful piece of art! These Tikis were carved with great attention to details.
