You guys have elevated this to a level on a par with the study of real artifacts. Comparative analysis, archaeological digs, hours spent studiously poring over long-forgotten documents....I love it! So when's the next instalment?

Lots of great stuff here, thanks everyone who's posting pics. Thought I'd post one today. For some reason I'm always intrigued by some of the "bastard child" ones, like this offspring in the middle below...



Both parents flanking on the left and right are HIP originals, but the one in the middle is not. Just says, "Made in Hilo Hawaii" on the bottom, and has a non-branded paper label on the back with a couple general sentences about "Temple Images".

New one direct from the Chicago area via my dad.

Never seen this one before (don't remember seeing it in this thread).

Anyone know anything about it?


OK, my bad, I just checked all 11 pages. How about these?

Hey PSD. Nice collection you got there.
Here's the large lava version, the large hapawood version, and the small hapawood version of one of your pieces:


there is also an in between version with the holes in the back filled


Large lava version tag:


The pen holder tiki design was also used on these two:

Wait a couple hours and House of Ku will post the nine hundred other things this same tiki was used on that I do not have.

Speaking of Freddie, here's the zodiac pendants he posted a while back:


And I cannot tell if your double eyed guy has jeweled eyes like mine does:


bottom markings:



Buzzy Out!

Here's the filled in large version on the left. The chic on the right freaks me out.
