In Long Beach, CA. It was carved by David Schultz for a business that is no longer in business. I keep watch over it.

Was on my way to a friend's house in Kaneohe, HI and took a wrong turn where I spotted this nice wooden craved tiki in the front on this house.


After gathering some bravery I went to the door to tell the house owner that I loved his tiki and I wanted to know the history of it. Thank heavens he did have a loaded shot gun at the ready, but instead he was very nice and cordial. His name was John and just retired. Years back he told me he took a wood working class and he caved the tiki out in front of his house. He also shown me others he carved, pictured below



And he also shared with me this nice piece of tiki art that his mother-in-law gave him.


John also was thinking of taking up his hobby again in his retirement, and I hope he does.

The Aku Aku Tiki in Sunset park Las Vegas. Funny how no one here ever knows where it came from.

Got lost a few months ago while looking for an advertised garage sale and passed this place -


The nonsense on the gate is a local football team.
