A few months back I was doing some sketches for new Marquesan work and one of the drawings jogged my memory.

Trader Vic's in the International Marketplace had these great Marquesan tikis hanging outside.

I remember being drawn to these tikis in a post that Gecko made many years ago before the Vic's was demolished.

I forgot about them until Max from Taboo Island posted a picture. That got me motivated again, and I set out to do a piece inspired by those tikis.





This pair each comes in at 24" H x 6.5" W.

I have plans to make a few larger ones also.

Jérôme, good to hear from you, and thank you very much for your kind compliments!

Just kind of on overdrive here as things seem to be flowing well.

Keep up the great work, so wonderful to see tiki so alive in France!

Beautiful Vic's tribute, your Marquesan flatwork is some of my
most favorite stuff around here. You are a carving machine my
friend, keep cooking.

Another great piece of art! Seriously, it's going to be hard to pick just one from you at Tiki Oasis. Look forward to meeting you, too, Lake.

Just eye-balled some of your thread.
Simply wonderful work. Love all of it.
Especially the Marquesas style.
Bravo!

A big mahalo to everyone for your kind compliments!

pappythesailor, conga, Benz, Tiki Kupcake, Mo-Eye Max, Watango and Iokona Ki'i, I really appreciate the feedback and support.

It is a real shame that progress had to take away the history of the International Market Place.

It is my goal when I carve a tribute to bring back the fond memory of Tiki's past.

Looking great! I love how they look outside on the fence.
And the mirror image cool.
I see a large red buoy did you paddle back with that sucker?
