Um desenho rápido, pretendo fazer uma versão melhor outro dia!
Sabe o que são as máscaras Tiki? Acho as culturas Polinésia e Havaiana fascinantes.
Tudo o que era esculpido com base em formas humanas era chamado de Tiki, provavelmente por conta de seu Deus chamado Tiki.
Eram esculpidas com base em pessoas existentes, divindades, ou traços de personalidade, e podiam representar deuses e/ou ancestrais.
Seu propósito também varia: homenagem, proteção, arte, culto, entre outros.
A quick drawing, I intend to do a better version other day!
Do you know what the tiki masks are? I think Hawaiian and Polynesian cultures are fascinating.
Everything that was carved based on human shapes were called “Tiki”, probably after their God named Tiki.
They were sculpted based on existing people, gods, character traits and could represent ancestors, gods or even living people.
Their purpose also varies: protection, art, worship, tribute, and so on.
Make winning a habit and break the habit of losing.
For what it is that you do in life, leadership or business live out the habits that afford you every opportunity to win. The ways of every day living.
Winning and succeeding is a very hard thing to do. But it can be done and repeated if we develop the proper habits.
And it is worthwhile to do it. Because winning never gets old and losing/failing absolutely sucks. Develop the habits and increase your chances at everything and anything you want to achieve.
Have a great Win Wednesday!

Alooooha! Ok - I know what you might be thinking - “A tree? What’s so cool about a tree?” But this particular tree at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is pretty spectacular! 🌺 It just so happens to be the only Candlewood tree in the continental United States, and it was planted by a @waltdisneyworld guest per tradition. It’s become a symbol for strength and resiliency for the the resort as it has survived multiple hurricanes! 🌧 The nuts from the tree are used to make special leis for resort leaders; the oil from the nuts is used in Polynesia to light torches, and the leis signify lighting the way for cast members and guests. The tree is located just behind the Great Ceremonial House - why not grab a dole whip and check it out the next time you’re at the Poly! 🌳
Herman Melville, the American novelist, author of Moby Dick, Benito Cereno and Bartleby the Scrivener among others, embarked on the whaler Acushneta in 1840. After many months at sea the ship finally anchored off the island of Nuku Hiva, the biggest island of the archipelago of the Marquesas Islands part of the Polynesian archipelago. Melville, in his book "TYPEES" published in 1946 narrates the autobiographical story of how he, together with a shipmate, decided to abandon the Acushneta in this remore corner of the world and how he survived to a terrible local tribe of cannibals named Typees.
Here's one extract about his first impressions on the island: "Those who for the first time visit the South Sea, generally are surprised at the appearance of the islands when beheld from the sea. From the vague accounts we sometimes have of their beauty, many people are apt to picture to themselves enamelled and softly swelling plains, shaded over with delicious groves, and watered by purling brooks, and the entire country but little elevated above the surrounding ocean. The reality is very different; bold rock-bound coasts, with the surf beating high against the lofty cliffs, and broken here and there into deep inlets, which open to the view thickly-wooded valleys, separated by the spurs of mountains clothed with tufted grass, and sweeping down towards the sea from an elevated and furrowed interior, form the principal features of these islands". #melville#polynesia#readingtomakesense
Come watch as live musicians and native performers tell the tale of how our Polynesian ancestors we're united by the ocean! Double-hulled canoes bring our dancers, singers, and islanders right to the water's edge and everyone joins in the fun. Huki, is an experience you do not want to miss out on!
