Six foot Hawaiian "Warrior" tiki.


Picked up the traditional Hawaiian war weapon while in the islands earlier this year.

Grrrr! The tiki and his maker getting our island on.

The Arizona heat, 100 degrees easily doesn't stop the focused carvers.

It's hot as hell in Arizona. The temperature outside has finally dropped below 110 degrees. I was outside starting to hallucinate thinking that I was in Hawaii. I then started feelin tribal before I passed out. This is what I found when I came to.

Newest member of the Tiki Republic.










This is a hand carved Hawaiian tiki from Mexican Fan Palm. Like many of the tikis you see displayed in the islands, this is a tiki complete with the tribal designs on the back.

On the front is a tiki face. Tikis generally represent protection. I gave this one a large nose for sniffing, meaning it can sense danger before seeing it.

On the back is a large tribal design at the top resembling an upside down bush. This is the Hawaiian symbol for royalty.

The row of small curls symbols are named Koru. Koru represent harmony and new beginnings.

Polynesians highly regard the ocean as their final destination when they pass away, therefore the ocean can represent death and the afterlife. The ocean has a dual meaning in that it also represents a food source, fertility, and persistence. The ocean is the complete lifecycle.

The Spearheads are common images used to express courage, dominance and willpower.

When the tribal designs a placed adjacent to one another they create greater meanings.

I consider myself a student of tiki and of Polynesian tatu. I have a lot of friends from the Hawaiian islands, Tonga, Samoa, New Zealand the Philippines and more. Learning as much as I can about the different islands keeps me continually searching for accurate information. As asked, I then try to pass that information along to educate the masses in what they're looking at when they see my tikis. Anything less is disrespect to all of them.

You can find me at
www.tikirepublic.com, on fb as Tiki Republic by Pierre Mosley and I'll post the tikis here as well.

Mahalo, Pierre

Thanks BigT, I wanted a mug that had multiple colors and a lot of detail. It's suppose to resemble a tiki coming outta the utopian jungles of the Tiki Republic. I also named it "Outta the Jungle" as a metaphor. With the detail and multi colors, hopefully it will stand at in the jungle of collectors tiki mug collections.
Just havin fun with it.
As far as the stains go, I just use a clear polyurethane sealant from Home Depot on the tiki's when I'm done. I don't know what the actual color will be until the sealant hits the wood.

Just finished this bad boy. I would like to dedicate it to all my friends from Hawaii and to those into the island lifestyle. As much as I hate to see it go it has already found an island home in the valley (Phoenix, Arizona). #tikirepublic #badasstikis #hawaiiantiki #arizonacarver
