Sometimes you just need to let off some steam, Air complaints, Nothing wrong with that
And Dusty has a valid issue, As long as we are talking about it & not attacking each other
it could lead to some good.

Aloha,

I think I have a simple solution to these threads. Pretend WE don't know. Anytime a new one pops up, the first one to see it posts this following response.

"I'm sorry. I really don't know. I've never seen anything like that before on Tiki Central. Thus, it must be worth BILLIONS, so I'd sell it on ebay right away with a starting price of $100,000. Good luck."

Then, any of us (that does know) that sees that response doesn't post on the thread, EVER. It sinks and because of the title becomes unsearchable. People will stop asking.

Problem solved.

Well put Phillip. Either that or just do not respond at all. The problem is it's very hard to bite your tongue sometimes and just let it go.

Wow, what have I helped to start... As you might know I'm the one who asked about the Pineapple wall carvings,,referred to as "hacked wood"..lol
I bought those wall hangings at an estate sale in La Canada, Ca. The women said they came from a bar her neighbor used to own 50 years ago and the crack in the girl one was from when a drunk threw a Mai Tai at the bartender...he ducked and the wall hanging fell and cracked..lol

I searched the internet looking for info on them, found nothing, hence I came here to ask about them....found an answer: "Hacked Wood from the Philippines"..

So I put them up in my home bar..hoping some day a drunk throws a Mai Tai at me and cracks the other one...

Mahalo

Oh and they are carved Walnut...

Is this wood carving witco?

It certainly looks like a Witco but I am not familiar with it, nor do I have any idea what it's supposed to be? Aside from that the wood grain and overall blocky-ness does have their quality and the mouth reminds me of their work?
I'd say probably.

I am not sure Bosko? look at the Burn/Finish, its pretty sloppy for an original Witco
I have never seen as pronounced burnt charcoal areas as those on a authentic Witco piece
But then again Bosko has seen more Witco then I have, Bosko take a second look?

And what the hell is it supposed to be, A rabbit?

That reminds me of the Baldknobbers from the Branson, MO area. They were characters from hillbilly folklore.

Actually I think it is early example of witco's foray into wooden robot art, I think he has been upside down the whole time

I know I've seen mugs like this here somewhere... but I don't know where and I can't identify this mug I found. Wazzits?
