Meet "Ku", one of the 4 earliest and highest Hawai'ian Gods, together with Kane, Lono and Kanaloa.
Ku is the God of Protection and Longevity, and of Forests, Wild Places and Crops, certain Crafts and is the Ruler of the ancient people. In his most well-known form, Kuka-'ili-moko, he is the God of Conflict and War and in this form, was the personal God of the great King Kamehameha I.
Ku represents the East, and the Rising Sun, and the morning hours belong to him. In some forms, he is associated with sorcery and is also often invoked when healing herbs are gathered.
Ku provides strength, drive and determination, inspires motivation and greatness, confers positive energy and frees an individual from his or her faults and errors.
This Ku Tiki Statue is a very impressive piece due to its size, and particularly interesting due to the Helmet on its head, as opposed to the more classic Headdress that are usually represented in Tiki carvings.
It is new, hand carved in full relief from wood and painted in a striking combination of brown and red. It is approximately 20 inches high, 7-1/2 inches wide and 3 inches deep. All dimensions are approximate and through the highest, widest and deepest points.
This Tiki stands on its own, and can easily be modified to hang on a wall. Each tiki statue is individually hand crafted and although the facial expression and other details are intended to match the temperament of the diety, each statue is a unique original. Hence, certain differences in the carving detail, grain and color of the wood, etc., should be expected.
Invite Ku into your home and your life ... to strengthen your Mana (personal spiritual power and life force energy) !!
