I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me how many different types of Tiki there are.

My interest stems from the fact I have a spirit guide who is a Tiki.(Yes, I know it was a shock to me as I am in the UK but hey I think Tiki's are pretty cool anyhow)

I would like to be able to learn how to draw Tiki's so any tips or pointers on that would be welcomed.

Thanks

To varying degrees...thousands...but Buzzy is correct; very good or extremely shitty. And as you will find out on this site, it depends on how you define good or shitty.

Psycho Tiki D (I know I am and I don't have any shitty tikis)!

Aloha, Fae.

Huge question, although as discussed above, it is very subjective.

You may wish to begin with some of the classic Hawaiian styles from the Place of Refuge on the Big Island:

Some say there is but one:




I was never much of a follower, though. I mean, really, sure some of his work is pretty cool. Take the early Jane's Addiction material, and that whole fish and loaves thing. Still, by the time he joined the Chili Peppers, forget about it. Lost me, he lost me.

Then, I met this fellow, he showed me an enlightened path. He shepherds me through the valley and lounges of darkness. I saw...I saw that light, and it was righteous:



WWJD? Dig it. Dig it, indeed.

The Jab is Dave Navarro Jesus?

Hmmmm, makes sense now that I look back on it. Come to think of it, I've never seen them both in the same room at the same time! Is it a matter of him taking off those Clark Kent glasses? Now I see the true meaning into the phrase What Would Jab Do?

Good and Shitty eh? lol that's fair enough as there can be good and bad in everything.

5 types I did find through a search Lono, Kon-Tiki under Tiki Gods

Peyote I am not sure If it is in the UK or not I would have to look into it.

I had, had training before that vision quest by a Native American elder whom my
then boyfriend got me in contact with. he scared the life out of me as he was good at what he did and being brought up a Christian I ignored his words. Till one day he got me into meditation and opened me up to it all. I was furious at him as it was a difficult thing to put on my shoulders, but grew to be friends with him.

Tiki I started talking to about 2 years ago after I was at a retreat learning about arch angel healing,past life regression.
I decided I wanted to qualify but realise I already knew it. still it was fun.
someone mentioned spirit children from that point on he started talking and never shut up and gave me the word Tiki I thought what is a Tiki I still don't know. even my mum has noticed him...she says he's talking again isn't he..as he likes computer games...can't imagine life without him as I am so use to him now. He often talks too much and states he is from the happiness ray. He is never unhappy unless someone upsets me and then boy he sees them as the enemy.

Maui - The time shifter

A demigod is the brother of Madam Pele. Maui is said to have lassoed the sun in order to slow it down and make the days longer on the island of Maui

his ropes around the sun are said to represent "rays".

Seriously though....

This got me thinking about classifying Tikis like we do with animals and plants:

Kingdom: art
Phylum: tribal / ethnic
Class: pacific islands
Order: hawaiian / rarotongan / rapa nui / marquesian / maori / etc
Family: wood carvings / stone carvings / weapons / fetishes / etc
Genus: (family of wood carvings) tikis...
Species: specific tikis...

Example:
Art / tibal / pacific islands / hawaiian / wood carvings / tikis / Ku
