I got an email from Bob at Oceanic Arts telling me that they are indeed theirs. First one is #483-Maori Sheild
Second one is #479-Tahitian Sheild

Handcarved in the 1960s from Sugar Pine or Redwood. Yeehaw!

Dang, waddaya know! Shows what happens if I do not have my archive handy to double check. Ron, you beat my Tiki eye! Congrats to a fine find and a hunch becoming a fact!
