In La Fortuna near Arenal Volcano, came across a great shop with monstrous tikis. The big one on the left is actually part of the building. We left with a modest example for $50.

...and I always loved that colorful plastic clothes line lawn furniture they have in Costa Rica, in all sizes and shapes. Someone should import that stuff, it is so mid-century!

That Tiki is HUGE and the chair is cool indeed... What's the story with those Tikis? What's that style? Is it supposed to be primitive or pop? Who did them and why? Where do we come from and where are we going?
