Satan's Sin has been out of town on business in a strange place called "Chicago" ... where clients are so cruel as to forbid investigation of local tiki bars, and hotels so primitive as to offer only dial-up as opposed to high-speed Internet access ....



Imagine Satan's Sin's surprise upon returning home to find the unfortunate Zardoz "indiscretion" revealed. It is vitally, vitally important that this picture never be shown to Mrs. Satan's Sin. Satan's Sin does not have much cash at the moment, but can offer the blackmailer ... a night of bliss ...

Satan's Sin closes in the sure knowledge that this posting will have the magic power to kill this thread.

you lucky bastard! I was just daydreaming about finding a hoard like that, did you find the pictures one by one or was it single find?

Great find! What was the damage? Did you get them at a car boot sale?

OK, I've been wondering this since I saw my first Tretchikoff: WHY are the women blue or green? Was this Tretchikoff's innovation or was he continuing some sort of tradition?

I think its just his style, but another question was posed by an eBay listing "Tretchikoff gay intrest green ladyboy" which claimed that his models were all ladyboys. Which i personally think is a load of bollocks.

Yeah, they look like women to me; the one second from the right in Cheekytiki's photo has a certain Lauren Bacall quality, but the Chinese woman (the really blue one on the far right) gives me the creeps. The one on the far left has me wondering if Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was influenced by Tretchikoff when he made the charactor of the green Orion slave woman for the pilot in the mid-1960's:

"She's like an animal...They say no human male can resist her" That sounds exotic to me, and the charactor to whom the woman was supposed to appeal was a serviceman dreaming of escapism.

I think this is my favorite Tretchikoff painting:


Unfortunately, though I've seen this Green Woman displayed in several tiki bars, I still don't know the name of the piece or the woman depicted. Obviously a Tretchikoff though. Anyone else seen this one?

I made a substantial bid for this print (on black velvet) in a pristine auction house in Pasedena,CA., but I was outbid by some guy by the name of "Koalacharms".
