Description 'My Ngati Pakeha Tikis have all been a celebration of being Pakeha in this country. These images say that the Tiki is ubiquitous in all that we do, no matter where we are. They are supposed to be fun, not mockery. They have been created as Kiwiana, that happy style. They say that everything in the World has a little of New Zealand in it and acknowledge that Tiki have a little of every part of the World in them. This one is based on the “sugar skull” styles fo the Day of the Dead culture we are becomeing more aware of.

So it is a uses a third party to make the cross cultural statement. While tipping the hat to the plastic Tiki of the tourist trade, my Tikis invite us all to hold a special place in our heart for the nations developing cultural identity. In ancient times it is said they were fertility symbols and still today these motifs represent the fertility of the ethnic mix here in New Zealand. While having humorous overtones they each carry the more serious message that we all are one.'
