Description

Of all Maori personal adornments, the human figure pendants known as hei tiki are the most highly prized and culturally iconic. This book showcases photographs of a large selection of hei tiki, most from the taonga Maori collection at Te Papa. The collection of over 270 hei tiki is the largest in New Zealand and very likely the world.
