A Hawaiian drum collected Capt Cook himself, how cool is that!



I'll bet not long after the good Cap'n acquired that drum he wished he'd beat it.

Ahem. Sincere mahalo to Vern for posting this heads-up -- this is going to make for a magnificent, and inspirational, field trip...

(Um, say, isn't that the 'Mayor of Halloween Town' among BBT's pics?)

Aloha amigos!
From a Mexican magazine:

At the end of the text, it says that one of the pieces belonged to the Anti-art Master Tristan Tzara.
To honor him, here I post some cut/paste dada style journalism.

Tristan Tzara one of the founders and central figures of the anti-establishment Dada movement.one of the "presidents of Dada". His work represented Dada's nihilistic side. Tristan Tzara was an influential author and performer, whose contribution is credited with having created a connection from Cubism and Futurism to the Beat Generation, Situationism and various currents in rock music. During the final part of his career, Tzara combined his humanist and anti-fascist perspective with a communist vision, joining the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War and the French Resistance during World War II...

A Savage, A Monster, A Proto-Beatnick... No surprise he was into Tiki!
