This poor thread is running out of steam.

Maybe this will help.....


Vintage LP



Vintage Jungle Pictures




Modern compilations





And here's something for the TC ladies...



Or is it time to start the Witco discussion?

very interesting thread here. there was a lion country safari in florida also. i remember going there as a kid. tour in you car. as some1 posted, you couldn't do this now thanks to lawyers and the PC groups that would whine scream bitch and moan. silver springs is still operating today. they still have the famous jungle cruise. the monkeys that are there are actual decendents of escapees during filming of some "tarzan" movies. when you board the boat for a cruise you are warned they will steal anything they can grab, glasses, cameras, whatever is available. there was a very expensive nikon hanging about 45' up in a tree. the gators keep the monkeys on the island they live on. monkey in they water = gator bait.

Monkeys and lions are nice, but how about some mid-century "Jungle" pulp art.....

I met this classy señorita wearing an amazing primitive African art printed jumpsuit in Madrid´s asphalt jungle.
I chased her through several streets taking pictures in my best paparazzo style.

Remarkable, isn´t it?



Yes I´m a geek.
Well, at least I refrain myself from asking her where did she bought it and hurry to buy one for me.

But that's what makes it so cool, though!

here is this white-bread Methodist missionary, alone in the jungle with only a rough hewn river rat to accompany her..it's the classic jungle story, (except she is not a hottie like all the other girls on this thread!)

Careful there Mister Naufrago, I got spanked by the BigBro when I misidentified his Oceanic spear & shield Aloha shirt as being African Pop Primitive. Who's to say your posted picture isn't representative of Mayan iconography?

Does anyone here have a phd in primitive cultures? We need your educated opinion.

You've heard of urban archeology? This is fashion anthropology.

John-O remember that my ancestors, los conquistadores, robbed and sacked tons of Pre-Columbian art.
In spain we are familiar with that stuff.

Trust me. That print is african primitive inspired.
