Great thread! As an enthusiastic fan of tiki, ancient mayan/aztec/olmec art and lucha libre, I support this thread whole-heartedly. Viva Mexico!

That's because most of the Mexicans are over here in the USA.

Tiki Mai Kai cannibal trio

Indiana Jones Idol

Mexico Pre Hispanic sculpture.

So, I think, the mystery of the origin of the Mai Kai three cannibals is solved.

Zeta mi amigo, nice to see you back! I am going to have to go with Grog on this one, looks more child-birth than Cannibal.

Well, there are those that theorize that the "Cannibals" are actually "Birthers": The big belly one being pregnant, than the two others giving birth seated. Like it is done in many indigenous societies.

According to historians, the Tahitians practiced infanticide - but not cannibalism. The Marquesans did, though. These Tikis are Marquesan in design. I am sure of that.

Bigbro,

Never thought about the birthing theory, makes sense.

Here is a version of the three Cannibals from the Luau in Canada that seems to go with that idea.
