Hau'oli Tiki,
Another option would be this Moai from Benson's Imports. I have purchased a few items from them over the last couple of years, and everything arrives quickly and they have some great products (as well as decent prices).

I got one of these Big Kahoona last year. Since he is molded plastic with a granite-look painted surface, he is somewhat flimsy, but fantastic for hanging because he is very light. I purchased a few cans of expanding foam from my local hardware store, and filled in some of the inner concave surfaces to make him just a little heavier (so he doesn't fly off the wall in a wind storm), and to make him a little more durable for outside. You can find the link here:
and look for item # 577 Big Kahoona.

I hope this helps!

Thanks TWB... That's the same one Tiki Pop offered to let me buy off him! I may grab it cuz he offered it to me for a great price! I was worried about the too light weight, but your idea seems to be the solution!
