Exquisitely carved Tiki Taiaha Head Pendant on an adjustable cord.

A taiaha is a traditional weapon of the Māori of New Zealand; a close-quarters staff weapon made from either wood or whalebone, and used for short, sharp strikes or stabbing thrusts. The Tiki represents the human form and one's ancestors. Traditionally passed from parent to child or used for protection and good luck.
Very seldom do you get a carving with such beautiful detail carving.
Each piece is individually carved so slight variations can occur.
