This is a digitally altered Alien/Tiki painting. Original created with acrylic paints.
I played with the idea of an alien crossed with a cultural icon “Tiki” from my home land of New Zealand.
The image became a hybrid of the two.
Tiki : Carved talisman in humanoid form, common to the cultures of the south Pacific Ocean.
A New Zealand Tiki is thought to bring good luck to its owner.
