HEY does anyone have a still pic from that CUBA documentary of the bar scene where that big monster tiki is when the couple is dancing --I THINK it was havanas Trader Vics and it is a nearly psychedelic scene in many ways..but i based this tiki on it and can't really find a good image anymore to use as reference to finish this guy off

Those guys look great Moondog, I wouldn't worry to much about pics from the cannibal. He looks excellent and i would love to have him in my yard.
Now let the chips fly.

Bought the I AM CUBA box set since our Virgin Megastore is at 40% off now and WOW are those scenes in Cuba AWESOME..may have to do ALL those tikis eventually ...the face of this is SUPER close but I made him a CANNIBAL

he enjoys a little HEAD (bad pun!)
