This piece is uuuugly, but the price was right ($10) so I had no choice. Would you even consider this thing Tiki???

that's not only ugly, but also highly disturbing.

i might describe it as 'tiki-influenced.'

For those of you from the O.C., it looks like one of the creatures from the old Jungle Island at Knott's. I'm sure one of you O.C. historians could shed some light...

Really? You think its from Knotts? I grew up 1 block from Knotts (and my parents still live there) and don't remember anything like that. I remember the pond, but not artifacts like that. I did find it at a swapmeet in OC though.

Ya this thing is creapy looking. When my brother saw it, he told me that it can't stay in the house. It has to go outside or he'll have nightmares about it...

I really don't find it ugly at all!! In fact I think it looks pretty damn cool and unique!! It looks Tiki enough to me and if it isn't Tiki to somebody else who "F"in cares. That is a sweet score!! Did they have any others??
Later,
Spermy

No, they didn't have any others. I actually found it late in the day for a swapmeet (~11:30am). And I didn't buy it right when I saw it. I saw it, walked the rest of the swapmeet, then went back and bought it on the way out.

Hell Yeah!! I agree with the Sperm-man. Its unique. I'm proud no matter what I find in the wild.

Looks like either an an Edvard Munch piece, or somebody who just took a knee in the family jewels. Nice score!

I saw the original statue ("Kimchees's Revenge", the natives call it) on one of my visits to a village Kitilita, in Magnesia.

Slightly reminds me of a Tupilak.... awful evil little totems that Greenlanders (or icelanders cant remember) would use as a black magic attack dogs, similar to a voodoo doll, once made, (out of carved bits of bone, blood, semen, whale tusk, hair..) it would be placed onto an iceflow and pushed out to sea, then to go after the intended victim....
I'll cut and paste the full story of what they are in a bit...
