Just adding a bit more information on the carved Elviki as I haven't seen this information on TC yet.
This weekend there are two ebay auctions for the carved Elviki that I posted before. I was SHOCKED at the price (I know... people can ask what they want but they will likely not sell at that price). The first was listed for $475 and the second for $1200... WTH!?!
At least the $1200 auction provided a little more information.
I have looked off and on for more information and this weekend there are two on ebay? And the crazy part is that they are BOTH in Washington state - and I found mine in Oregon.

just for the record - elviki character is created and designed by austin artist cindy crowell - a number of years back i had a business relationship with her in which i produced the original elviki tiki cast and painted figures as dskdesigns. There was even talk at one point of an elviki tiki mug by tiki farm. I do not have any extras and have not produced anymore since the original run. it was a limited edition. cindy can be found on facebook - anyone interested in anything elviki should contact her. Anyone wanting to pick up the banner and continue where i left off as far as producing anything elviki, she might consider partnering up with you. Elviki is a copyright protected character.
