In Māori mythology, Tiki is the first man created by either Tūmatauenga or Tāne. He found the first woman, Marikoriko, in a pond; she seduced him and he became the father of Hine-kau-ataata.
By extension, a tiki is a large or small wooden or stone carving in humanoid form, although this is a somewhat archaic usage in the Māori language.
Carvings similar to tikis and coming to represent deified ancestors are found in most Polynesian cultures.
They often serve to mark the boundaries of sacred or significant sites.
A Tiki is believed to symbolise fertility, and is often worn by women as a fertilising symbol.
Its form is believed to represent a human embryo, often carved with the hands placed on the loins in what is believed to be a direct reference to fertility.
It also thought that the person wearing this symbol possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and a strength of character.
