Aloha or Servus from Bavaria,

It´s a long time ago, when I read this thread. It inspired me to create my own Tiki Microcosms.
Then I build a voodoo box out of an old first aid box, which I found in my garage.

So thanks to bigbrotiki for give me so much impulse. I hope you will enjoy the voodoo box,
with all the inhabitants and dangerous secrets. If you want to see more pictures
and read some informations about the smoking Bamboo Tikis, the magician from the "Long Ear" clan,
or about the master above "Mana" and "Taboo" please visit my TC thread.
Here
A little preview:








I was very surprised when I read about Frankenmuth. It´s too funny! Little Bavaria with all his
cliché in the USA. It´s a honor for the Bavarians, but I am happy to life in the origianl one.
bigbrotiki, I hope you will visit us soon.

Greeting, Haikai

Thanks for posting about this creation in this microcosm thread - it is the first time I am seeing it. That is an amazing work of art - one of the best things I have seen on Tiki Central.

Vern

It looks like it´s hot at the LAVABOWL! I like the funny guy in the background with the umbrellas.

Thanks ikitnrev, Sneakytiki, TIKI-TONGA and Chongolio for your nice coments.
You are right TIKI-TONGA I used LEDs. Two white LEDs behind the bamboo pipies with the Tiki faces,
one green LED behind the bone pot and under the roof a red and a with one.

I hope this nice thread will animate some of you to post more Tiki Microcosms.

Aloha Haikai !!! That just Gumby -
http://www.everwonder.com/david/gumby/history.html ...Sometimes, it's really hard to sleep with all the music and singing going on, not to mention the glare of the red lights coming from "DA LAVA BOWL".

I really like to Voodoo Tiki box. It kind of reminds me of something that would have been in Beetlejuice.

Aloha!

Here I proudly present my new microcosm the "The Forbidden Paradise" display cabinet:

At the relief you can see the tiki god protecting the vulnerable and occult paradise with his shields and the wisdom of the ocean.



"Forbidden Paradise" from different views!





The shack of the inhabitants!



The tree house and the rope bridge!

Aloha Tiki friends,

this is the poster of my next tiki artshow in my hometown Regensburg/Germany.
The "Grand Opening show" with exotic music and drinks will start at Saturday - 7.00 pm - 3th October 2009.

Kopfkunst
Corner shop
Schwandorfer Straße 24
Lappersdorfer Straße at Regensburg

The show includes many different artworks of the last 5 years, from the first tiki to the last. I will also report about
the unforgettable impressions uring my tiki time and show two new tiki dioramas.

Perhaps one of you gals and guys will be in Germany during this time. So I would be happy to meet you at the opening show.

haikai -

I so wish I could be there at your opening - wishing you all the success in the world.

I love the poster art too..very reminiscent of classic magic posters of the early 20th century - any chance of me getting my hands on one of those? Let's trade!?!
