Maybe that's what Kirby was referring to the other day when he told GROG he loved his "hooker".

here is my newest pendent i did for the tonga hut.... it is inspired by the giant moai inside the bar... The story behind the original is that, well for one it has been in the bar for some 30 years i believe, im not sure who carved it but its pretty big,carved from palm,and has developed some pretty distinktive cracks in it,which gives it great caricter...another thing is that beyond its hay-day as one of the O.G. tiki bars in the valley it ended up as a dive/sports bar so the giant moai is riddled with millions of dart holes,which seems like sacralige to me but we cant change its history... so i desided to add the crack and dart holes to the lil pendent too...

heres the original

thanks jimbo...yes hand painted and i hope to have at least 20 at the show but i will be doing a total of 100 if possible...the price will be in the range of $13 to $16. Im using a 3D mold this time which was a lil more work...
