Kawakawa Hei Tiki - NUJD9510

All Pounamu is sacred and highly valued by Ngāti Waewae. Carving this sacred stone has been a cornerstone of our culture for hundreds of years and we are honoured that you have chosen to adorn yourself with this most scared gift.

The Hei Tiki depicts the Māori god 'Tiki' who was the first man who originated from the stars and is considered responsible for the creation of life.

Contemporariliy, the Hei Tiki has come to also represent a symbol of fertility, a good luck charm and a talisman against evil for the wearer.
