Tradtional style tiki, Bone

Interpretation of the headress symbol

hiku-atu
This pattern is a modification of the niho-peata and it got its name from the bonito (atu = scomber pelamys). The tuna was supposed to be a predator on the Marquesian islands and was adored in a strong way. Thats why this tattoo symbolises all good attributes that are attributed to the bonito effiency and agility. Thus the tattoo is a sign for the skillfullness of the persons, who got it if they were warriors it shows skills at hunting enemies, if they were fishermen it shows skills at hunting the prey.

Indeed they do! I'm finding it not easier to carve than wood, but more consistent. Less of the stringing, knots and grain.

Thanks for the comments! Mike

Nearing completion. Getting a "Tea" bath for color and awaiting finish. Bone I am finding takes detaikl much better than woods Inhave worked with, and should make for some interesting future projects.

Progression on a Water Buffalo bone tiki.

The Marquesan Cross and spear head scrimshaw.

The Polynesian tattoo symbols of spear heads can be found in almost every Polynesian tattoo design. Its designed to express courage and fight. Its also used to represent warrior, sharp items, and sting of animals and rays. Spear heads are usually used in combination with other symbols to express certain meanings. For example, one line of spear heads and one line of enatas upside down along its side can express the meaning of defeating enemies. It has many variations with arrows repeating.
