Is there a "What is it?" thread?
I threw an African piece in tiki finds 'cuz I didn't know it wasn't tiki in the polypop kinda way.

Is there such a thing as a Ku birdman? Or could this be a more accurate carving? I ask because the head dress actually is attached to the arms and a semi proportioned leg length. This happens to be more man-like (or woman-like) than most tikis I've seen. It does have quite large pectorals.

Here goes..



Or is just interpretation?

I wouldn't say poorly hacked.

I have made some poorly hacked tikis.
