That must have come from a small ship!
Sorry for making this an example, but it is a good one, and I will, for those who are confused:
No, a pirate is NOT "Tiki Style" - by itself that is. But Trav is not saying it is. When a piece like this becomes part of a thoroughly Tiki-ed out environment like the Hukilau Lounge, it adds to the "Seven Seas/ Armchair Explorer" atmosphere that is the essence of a good Tiki hideaway.
Would this be a room full of Pirate decor, and a Tiki figurehead would be added to it, it would be an entirely different matter/ genre. Sorry to point out what might seem like the obvious to many, but I felt it might help clarify things for some.
