Thanks AdOrAdam - I didn't lighten the matting, but I did use bamboo matting, not the usual lauhala matting. Maybe that's why it's looking lighter than your used to.

Also, FYI you can still get those cannibal trio statues on Swanky's site:

Thanks for sharing this, Trad'r Bill! We love the look and feel of your space. What is immediately striking is the color---all earthy brown tones and then green. It's very nice.

Some questions: what is the carving on the wall in the booth? It looks very interesting from the photos. And is the "Chow 'n Grog" sign from a restaurant? Also we have to say that we really love that coffee table. That super-laquered look is just perfect.
