This unique Tiki Mask painting incorporates Day of the Dead imagery with Hawaiian Tiki culture. A skeleton wears a tiki mask while dancing around with a tiki torch with a green lit flame.
In Polynesian culture, tiki torches were used in religious ceremonies to pay respects to the gods. Pele the goddess of fire and light, was the god who was most often venerated by the tiki torch.
The piece was made with acrylic and enamel on birch panel and measures 8″x12″. It comes in a custom wood frame with wood burnt tribal details bringing the total size to 13″x15″. Although the original painting has sold there are still paper and canvas print options available!
