The concept of Tiki, in Polynesian myths, is not easy to understand. Tiki is god, man, and the image of the god. "Tiki is at once the first man, and the creator or progenitor of man."*
In many of the Polynesian creation myths the first beings, human or divine, are a male trinity (Tane, Tiki and Tangaroa) who emerge from the Mother Earth at the separation of earth and sky. The actual names may vary from one area of Polynesia to another.
One myth says that Tiki made man by mixing his own blood with clay and breathing into it.*
Tiki Statues ~ Tiki Gods
Today, "Tiki" usually means "image" or "statue". The Tiki statue is most often a wood or stone carved rendering of a Polynesian god. There is a resurgence of interest in tiki and many tiki are no longer actual Polynesian gods, but stylized carvings with no ancient history.
Tiki gods are often used for decoration for the Polynesian themed "luau party" or that laid back "South Seas" decor.

Polynesian Tiki Candles
Hawaiian Ahu Kai Tiki is pictured, in the photo at the top of the page, on the left. This Tiki Candle is "jade" in color. The green can vary from very pale, almost yellow, to dark jade green. In Hawaiian, ahu has many meanings, including shrine. Kai, is a word for ocean/seaside/current. So, Ahu Kai is "shrine by the sea". This Tiki God can help make your own tropical island paradise, even if you live far from the nearest sea. Ahu Kai may bring a sense of peace and harmony, to any room where he lives. Please, do not leave candles burning, unattended.
Ahu Kai Tiki Candle Details
The Ahu Kai candle measures approximately 9" high x 2 1/4" across and is unscented. These Tiki god statues are stylized carvings, not actual Polynesian Gods. The Tiki candles have a granite-like appearance of carved stone. Each comes wrapped in cello, with a name card. Made in Germany.
These Polynesian Tiki Candles are large enough to accommodate a standard tealight. Once you burn the Tiki candle enough, it should not be too difficult to insert one and replace them as needed. This would allow you to maintain the Tiki's appearance and enjoy them for much longer. No matter how you choose to burn these Tiki candles, they are sure to bring enjoyment wherever they live!
