The Origin of Tiki?

It’s easy to see how the ancient Polynesians developed a religious tradition around the god Tiki, and became famous for carving stone statues to represent their deity.

Just one look around the valley of Hanavave and you’ll see many faces in the rocks, carved by Nature’s forces. It is enchanting and bizarre!

Who wouldn’t worship and try to emulate such a power; which manages to make life-like human figures out of massive stones in steep cliffs?
