Tiki Design

Give a little shake when seasoning your food- hula style!  Let these charming hand-cast, hand-glazed ceramic shakers bring the spirit of Old Hawaii to you! All our tiki designs are based loosely on actual ancient Hawaiian tikis found at the Bishop Museum on Oahu, and my kid’s own spin on each theme.  Each one made with aloha, just for Banana Wind, you won’t find these anywhere but here.  The family we work with lives all together on one compound, and everyone there is part of the production- grandpa’s, grandma’s, children, and even the family pets!  We love visiting them as they are located high in the mountains of Bali, far away from tourist crowds and the modern world. 

Prosperity  (Kanaloa Kane).  Back row. This Tiki totem has 2 Hawaiian gods. Kanaloa, god of the oceans, abundance and happiness, is paired with Kane, god of Prosperity, Light and Life.  Kane also had the power to heal.  Together, they form a tiki that marries abundance and prosperity into Happiness.

Happiness (Kanaloa).  Kanaloa is the ancient tiki god of the sea. Second Row on Left.   He is the god of the oceans, abundance and Happiness.  Kanaloa is one of the four great gods of Hawaiian mythology, along with Kane, Ku, and Lono. He is the local form of a Polynesian deity generally connected with the sea.

Luck  (Lono Ku-ka-ili-moku).  Second Row on Right. Ku-ka-ili-moku is one of the many forms of the powerful and protective god Ku.  Ku became the favorite deity of Kamehameha I who was the supreme ruler of Hawai`i in the early 1800s. Kamehameha gave this god credit for his luck in success with uniting the islands of Hawai'i into one Kingdom.  Coupled with Lono, God of Peace, this Tiki totem has a double meaning; peaceful prosperity, which can be distinguished by the set of eyes going upward and downward.

Peace (Lono).  Front Row. In Hawaiian mythology, Lono is the God of Peace.  He is also the God of fertility and music.  Lono  was one of the four gods (with Ku, Kane, and his twin brother Kanaloa) who existed before the world was created.
