Description

21 is the age that a person in New Zealand is classed as an adult, and the giving of the 21st key is a strong New Zealand tradition to symbolize
opening the door of maturity and becoming an adult. Alternatively, the giving of a key is a symbol of the limitless doors they can open in their life.
In Maori legend, Tiki is the chief son of Rangi and Papa (the Sky Father and the Earth Mother). The belief is that tiki serve as dwelling places
 for ancestral spirits, while others are vessels for gods and supernatural beings. The tilted head of Tiki symbolises clear thinking, the hands (strength)
mouth (communication), the heart (love), and the loins (fertility). The receiver is assumed to be of strong character, clear thinking, perceptive loyal,
and knowledgeable, making the Hei-Tiki a very treasured taonga (gift)..
This artwork with its intricate design is an impressive contemporary representation of Hei-Tiki. The key is crafted from recycled Native New Zealand
Rimu veneerboard, medium density fibreboard (mdf), Gaboon veneer plywood and embellished with NZ Paua & Mother of Pearl laminate.
MADE IN NEW ZEALAND
