Unfortunately, I'm on a budget right now. But someone needs to buy this vintage masterpiece and hang it above their bar, so that I can come see it and have a drink.

Look at the beautiful color of that wood and the detail of the carving. Where do you think this item was bought originally?

Someone buy this, please.

Sabu

Good Job, Mexatiki.

If you wind up the winner, I definitely want to come over and see it close up.

Sabu

I agree Mexatiki that will look sweet over the bar, or anywhere in the bar, hope you win it.

Now what does a guy named Docbaseball what with an outrigger with tiki's in it? Maybe he thinks they are holding little bats?

That looks somewhat similar to this piece over the host/hostess station at Bali Hai:

I saw one exactly like this in one of the marquesas island...it was very very expensive. This is a great piece, congratulation.

It is a catch 22 Hiltiki, I wish it happened on all my auctions but that has become the nature of the beast...the truly hard to find things go for big bucks...unless they are listed incorrectly and the average pieces get average to low prices...3 days left on this one...hmmm we shall see how it ends up.

There are not many things that I desire to own for my collection left, and I am always thrilled when something comes up that I feel I must have, this is one of those pieces.

I am gonna go for it, because Marquesan art is my absolut favourite, because I am working and have work coming up and will miss out on a lot of summer Tiki fun this year and deserve a treat in return.

It is not as elaborate as the one at the Bali Hai. I did not see anything like it when I was in the Marquesas, glad to hear from Virani they are still making them.

If I won't win it, I will have saved a bundle, but if I do, it will motivate me to work for more moolah!

Well, the one I saw was exactly like this one, in a smaller size. The tiki could be taken off the canoe, so as the pagae. It was in Ua Huka island, where there's the most beautiful tiki artcraft out of wood.
