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.
