They are made in the Philippines--I have the same pair and they are stamped as such.

In addition I have a fish set, owl set and bongo set all with the sort of carvings inside them.

I am pretty sure they have been posted on Tiki Finds numerous times before--they aren't very rare. I bought my set for $4.99 at a thrift store.

This is also known as airport art, mass-produced tourist art, - or "nameless pieces of hacked wood"

Well, I quite like my "nameless pieces of hacked wood" hanging up. But then, I have never been one of those purists who will only have something rare and collectable. If I like it, I like it. I'm starting to feel that those of us are newer to the forum aren't quite good enough for the cool kids since we have stuff that wasn't bought "in the wild" or is mass-produce tourist stuff made in the Philippines. Not just this particular thread, but lots of other threads as well where newer members are put down. The common complaint is that TC is slow because of the newbies posting threads on existing topics and all the old members are being driven away. Maybe it's because the newbies are often treated like red-headed step children that we eventually go away before we had a chance to really get to know people and the culture of the forum.
