N.O., that is quite a desirable mug for any Los Angelino Tikiphile, especially one that used to frequent Kelbo's. Unfortunately, I cannot offer any real Oceanic artifacts. In fact, you are the only collector here that I know of that actually collects the REAL thing. Most of us probably have deemed these things unattainable, I appreciate the fact that you demonstrate that in this day and age, authentic Oceanic artifacts can still be found and afforded.

Hi Sven,
Periodically these things can turn up at Antique stores, Estate Sales, or Flea Markets. A lot of Micronesian and Melanesian material was brought back in the 1940s by servicemen during the War ,and I've even picked up arrows from people that spent part of the 60s living in New Guinea while in the Peace Corp. I decided to stick with artifacts, because to me they have more of a history to them, but I still do always keep an eye out for Tiki Mugs and paper out of habit.

Best regards,
Nifo Oti

I'll trade this Treasure Craft S&P set for a mug or something I don't have.

I have a genuine aboriginal kundela, or "pointing bone," which I might be willing to trade.

This is an aboriginal killing bone, collected from a Walpiri tribe member, G. Jabanadi, in Yuendumu area, 300 km west of Alice Springs in the 1960s by a Danish geologist, Jan Splitt. He was in the country between 1965 and 1969. In 1979, his collection was presented in the Esbjerg Museum, and the items have been referenced.

Amongst the Australian native peoples, there is no such thing as a "natural death." This is a rather common belief among the Pacific islanders, including the Sepik in Papua New Guinea. It is generally believed that death is caused by a witch doctor or sorcerer. In ART OF THE FIRST AUSTRALIANS, John Carrick relates that, "Australian aboriginal sorcerers were universally feared; they could cause death or injury to a victim by projecting an evil spirit into him with a 'pointing bone.' Bone pointing was practised by many groups. Among the Aranda of central Australia, the bone was cursed and pointed secretly at the victim with chants. Unless some medicine man could remove the evil magic, the boned person would die."

Hi all!
So, I have this problem with dunlops disease (for those of you not from Georgia, that means by belly dun-lopped over mah belt). So I have this lovely, gently worn, 2xl blue-green tiki print shirt. The pattern on the pocket lines up nicely, and it has a tiki on it. Looking to trade it for a nice aloha shirt, preferably also gently worn with a tiki on it, sized 3xl.

Anyone interested out there in TV land? Might also be interested in other swag, feel free to make an offer. I'd really love a replacement tiki/tapa print shirt though.

I offer this. I can supply better photos. Overall the picture is in good shape, missing a paint chip to the lower right of the bowl, a smaller chip to the left bottom of the bowl, a couple of smaller chips to the upper left. The frame is in decent shape, some scuffing around the edges. Not a Near Mint example, but would make a nice addition to your room.

This is #2 in my finds. I was going to flea bay it, but would rather it go to a TC'er who is looking for one. What am I looking for? Mugs, preferably from defunct Tiki establishments. I am really trying to get some from AKU AKU, Islander Stockton, Kona Kai, Hawaiian Village Tampa, etc. I will handle shipping charges on my end, & you handle shipping charges on the mugs. PM me with offers. I will like to try and have this finalized a week from today.

Curious that this thread didn't take off. Anyway, I've got this to trade, if anyone's interested.
