Spotted another Aku Aku photo, great shot of the entrance bridge, front doors and Eli Moai flanking to the right.

Saw this posted on the Vegas Craigslist back in 2014
(Not sure why I didn't post here)
As soon as it was up
It was gone
Wonder where they ended up

Ben- think these really from the Aku-Aku?
Did he make em this size?

To bad he had em held in place by putting concrete all around it.....

Hang10,

Very cool photos, amazing to see those Aku Aku Tikis in the wild! Here is a photo of one of them outside the Aku Aku entrance.



Also shown in the photos posted by Bamboo Ben.




It looks like they had about 1/3 of the Tiki planted in concrete which is a shame.
