You are absolutely right:
A.) Sellers on e-bay will offer anything remotely primitive or mask-like as Tiki to raise its perceived value.
B.) Souvenir stores ANYWHERE (that includes Hawaii) will import any object from any country and sell it as their own culture's handicraft as long as it vaguely fits the bill.
C.) Why worry further where it's from, it IS just an ugly thing with big earrings.Or, my favorite genre description for tourist art, a "nameless piece of hacked wood". Now if that Dean't help you with your attachment problem.



Well itīs more than an ugly thing with big earrings.
Itīs an an ugly thing with big earrings and three faces.
I canīt help wondering the whys (impossible to find out)and the wheres (usually an easier question to answer) of this kind of stuff.

Giving it a second thought, that it probably doesnīt deserve, I found some similarities with this:













Any Cuban TCer out there?
I need help.

Mister N., why fret? Now that we created a place for it, this simply belongs to this genre:

Do I seem worried?
Nah, just curious.
But you are right about the place for this topic.

I am just a newbie to TC, you know, and still find this forum thing too fast to follow.
Newbie to Afro-Cuban art too. Maybe thatīs why I am being such a pest.

I picked this shirt up last year at a thrift store near the Hanalei.



They seem a little boxy which makes me think Latin America, but one of them is doing that ooooo thing that tikis often do. Hmm...

I think it is a case of This-is-supposed-to-be-Tiki and the artist not knowing better. The hands are very Tiki, too, but the head-to-body proportions are wrong.

My neighbor brought me this pair of ceramic figurines. They are too small and light to be bookends and a little large for salt and pepper shakers (no holes either). Anyone have any ideas? They look cool and tiki-ish when they are with my tiki collection. They have no markings.

I'd say TIKI 100% . They are Easter Island Moai. A bit stylized in design though. Not sure what they were made for. Maybe a tourist piece. Good find.

Probably African (the braids), but a certain Marquesan vibe I would say.
Any help?
