I do not know, but if you find out let me know, we have a 6 foot resin one in the backyard, as well as a flounder burlap painting of the guy. It would be nice to know his name if there is one other than "God of money"

I thought it was Laka Moo Lah? And his main shrine was on Mount Wanahokaloogi? Or was it Mount Kamonawanalaya?

ooko lady, thanks for bumping that up and finding that token.
I have never seen that before. The 3 years I was out there, the Trop never had that token. I placced a bid, maybe I'll get lucky, I really would like it.
Actually I would like to know what happened to the original carvings, where they went when they sold.. No one seems to know. Thanks.

Ben , I talked to at least 6 diffent people and no one could give me or wanted to give me any info on the carvings.

I tried to track down the landscaping manager as you had said and had no luck. I hope that someone from Vegas could find out for us and post it.

His wife is called "Kala Awl Maaina"
