Tiki wood carving is a traditional art form in Hawaii that dates back centuries. Hawaiian carvers would use hand tools to carve intricate designs into wood, often depicting gods, heroes, and other important figures in Hawaiian mythology. Tiki carvings are typically characterized by their bold, stylized designs and distinctive facial features, such as large eyes, pronounced noses, and open mouths with exposed teeth.
