You may know that I was part of replacing some old tikis at the entrance to the Mai-Kai.


What was replaced were 3 very old fern tikis that had deteriorated beyond the point of no return.


When we removed the old tikis, there were plans to use them in the garden somehow. Well I guess that fell through so I told them of my interest in the old bones. They let me have them!! We arranged pickup and I brought one home.


You can see faint traces of what the tikis look like. This one is actually missing the top of its head. The biggest issue is that this tiki was mounted on a metal pole. That pole went all the way through so the fern is essentially hollow. I have come up with a plan to fix that but it has to wait till I finish carving the outside. Here it is after one session...


Update will posted soon.

IMO they are in FANTASTIC shape for being 60 years old and outside for those 60 years. I wish they had kept them and used them as is. Considering the Barney West stuff came into the gardens 10 years later and are in very poor condition or completely gone, these are amazing.

killer stuff, tom. luv that little mask. what's up with the ferns? any new progress? I can't quite tell from the pics if you are re-carving them as their old forms or into something different. neat project, though.

Hang10 - You should have given us a heads up when you went to the Mai Kai.

BigT - the ferns are a work in progress. I have filled the inside with the remnants of what I carve off. The figures will be all new as the old figure would not work on what was left of the root. No rush - hope to get it done before the New Year.

Progressing nicely. Needs to dry before I put a finish on it.
