Ha! The majority of these are from the Oceanic Arts catalog. Made in Whittier, CA.


Just to clarify: I was not suggesting with the above that these carvings are NOT from the Hawaiian Hut. I believe they are, they do look 60s/70s vintage. I was merely pointing out that (together with the Tahitian/Marquesan tourist carvings that Spence Weaver decorated his places with) there was a good number of imported O.A.-made pieces that decorated his and many other Waikikian Tiki temples. My favorite location for O.A. decor was the Bishop Museum cafeteria.

Aloha,

It's all gone now. The A-Frame was sheered off. Like it was never there...



Fortunately, I have pictures to prove the opposite.

Sh*t! I guess I waited too long to check back in...
They wanted a couple hundred for the center Moari Tiki and
one of the side ones. The center one looked pretty weathered and
possible termite damage/wood rot...looks like a piece broke off
awhile ago.

Saw this fella on Ebay...Almost got it...Again





http://www.ebay.com/itm/271016060156?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Stands 30 1/2" in height, 13" at its top and 9 3/4" at the bottom
Carved from a coconut tree stump
Modeled after the tekoteko or koruru of New Zealand
Lots of great details- tongue outstretched, bulbous eyes, patu in hand and painted decorations
From the Hawaiian Hut, which was part of the famous Spencecliff restaurants of Honolulu
Seems to have been attached to a pole at some point, two large nails are present
Appears to have been outdoors for some time, has a great weathered look.
Aloha, Freddie

Here is another photo of the Hawaiian Hut floor show from a Spencecliff restaurant guide book I have.

Nice view of the Tiki poles that framed the stage.


The floor show at the time was Kalo's South Seas Revue.
