One of the most popular and most recognizable Maori symbols. Tiki is an emblem in Polynesian cultures from Hawaii to New Zealand. According to legends tiki was the first man on earth who originated from the stars, the first mortal person who created the first woman after his image. Tiki is a good luck charm meant to keep evil spirits away and for fertility.
