Seems like the "Home Made Kit" side just scored a point!

In all my years of mindless Tiki babbling, that has been the conventional wisdom on this piece. I too recall Al's experience, in addition I have talked to several other celebrity collectors, who must remain nameless for privacy issues, and all have believed/been told the mosaic to be a home hobbyist type project. Still who knows? We could all have been telling each other the same story, a circle of stupidity if you will. It wouldn't be my first.

This particular piece is good, very good in fact. I saw it when first listed on eBay and thought the same thing about the price and the seller's comments re: presumed value. One price does not make a market, wish that were, as I would have a few $600 Tiki Bob mugs to unload again. I doubt it sells at $2k...but if the seller were to put it out at say $500 and let the bids run...I bet he gets fairly close to that in the end.

Speaking of this mosaic, I own this:



It's a Reyn Spooner.

I wore it to Forbidden Island's Sunday Marketplace event. Offers to buy were made on the spot, but my man boobs were not ready for public viewing, so I demurred. Plus, chicks dig the Easter Island motif, so I ain't selling, yet.

1000 posts, and nothing on.
