Description
Hei Tiki are the best known of all Māori adornments. Tiki are symbols of fertility that depict a new-born child. They are often family heirlooms bearing personal names and embodying their wearer's lineage. As with most Māori personal adornments, Hei Tiki are often passed down generationally.
