Tiki man refers to the first man created by the Maori Gods according to their mythology. Since ancient times, the Tiki man has been represented in the form of a wooden pole that is carved in a human-like shape. It looks very similar to the Red Indian totem pole but is less complicated in its carvings. Even today, a Tiki man is used by the New Zealand Maoris to demarcate a boundary for a sacred site.
