Wooden Maori God Lono Tiki Mask Statue

Maori God Lono Tiki Statue, hand crafted by a skilled artisan, features detailed carving and contrasting colors. The Polynesian God Lono is identified with fertility, nature and rain. He is also the deity of music, art and peace. He is usually displayed in homes to promote peace, love and serenity and is regarded as one of the four most important gods in polynesian culture. Handcarved from albesia wood and enhanced with contrasting colors, this sculpture is a must for any tiki collector. In Hawaiian religion, the God Lono is associated with fertility, agriculture, rainfall, music and peace. In one of the many Hawaiian stories of Lono, he is a fertility and music god who descended to Earth on a rainbow to marry Laka. In agricultural and planting traditions, Lono was identified with rain and food plants. He was one of the four gods (with , Kāne, and Kāne’s twin brother Kanaloa) who existed before the world was created.

Lono was also the god of peace. In his honor, the great annual festival of the Makahiki was held. During this period (from October through February), war and unnecessary work was kapu (forbidden). In Hawaiian weather terminology, the winter Kona storms that bring rain to leeward areas are associated with Lono. Lono brings on the rains and dispenses fertility, and as such was sometimes referred to as Lono-Makua (Lono the Provider). Ceremonies went through a monthly and yearly cycle. For 8 months of the year, the Luakini (temple) was dedicated to Ku-with strict Kapus. Four periods (kapu pule) each month required strict ceremonies. Violators could have their property seized by priests or overlord chiefs, or be sentenced to death for serious breaches.
