I picked this up this weekend and suspect it was probably a mass produced "tourist tiki". It was only a few bucks an antique mall and I thought it was really cool. It's about 8" tall. Anyone have the skinny?

It definetely IS massproduced Tahitian tourist fare...but I am partial to Marquesan style Tikis, and this one is very well accentuated. Above average I would say. Maybe common in France, but not in these parts.
