Tiki refers to large wood and stone carvings of humanoid forms in Central Eastern Polynesian cultures of the Pacific Ocean.
The term is also used in Māori mythology where 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.
In the Māori language, the word “tiki” was the name given to large wooden carvings in roughly human shape, although this is a somewhat archaic usage. The carvings often serve to mark the boundaries of sacred or significant sites.
