From there- it only got worse. Most of the pieces are from same person.

12 foot tall PNG tiki like pole. I think it was $3800.00
Lucky for me my ceilings are only 8 feet. The 2nd pic is top & 3rd pic is towards bottom.

More goodies................

Huge food hook (per the tag) It's nearly 6 ft tall.



This carving was in an acrylic case- was huge & the detail was unbelieveable.
No price so I assume I can't afford it. I want it anyway. Maybe I can sneak this 5'x6' carving out the door w/o anyone noticing.


This mask was incredible. Complete w/ casowary feathers & an alligator crawling out it's mouth. I want this in the worst way!!!!!! Probably 48" tall.



Another cool figure pole. Lots of details on both sides. This is the back side!



A nice example of a Yam mask laying on the floor behind a coffee table & couch. Are you friggin' kidding me? Priced around $700



Some sort of board. Very cool.
But wait- what is that on the left- agains't the wall?




I pull it out for inspection. Price is around $800 but it's marked down.
2 tags on it. One says it's a PNG shield, the other says it is a gope board.
Both are wrong!!!!
Store owner says it's been there for awhile & they discounted it frankly because they & owner have no clue what it is. I know what it is but I won't say....... yet.





I make a cash offer & he hesitates. I give him my cell number & say we are going to lunch. Call the owner & see if they want to display it or sell it.
An hour later, I get a call.

So- I now own it!
BTW- it's a PNG ceremonial food bowl!
There's 2 feet on the bottom. Pretty excited- great find.




This is the front "bowl" side. Those floor tiles are 10x10. Pretty big for a bowl.



Detail of the carvings of Casowary birds & fish.



More detail of other end of bowl. Very nice patina.



Back of the food bowl. Note the legs next to the 2 square holes & the carved alligator.



Detail of the alligator carving.


I want to go back tomorrow & make a stupid offer on that Yam mask & see what happens.

Well- we never made it to the Riviera or M Modern. The couple who rode down w/ us live in Diamond Bar so we had to leave early this morning because of the fires.
Suppose to go again in 3-4 weeks so we'll try again.

Don't listen to anything this Tiki poser has to say, he has posted before under a different name......he only knows cars and shit (plumber!) If you knew where to look you would have spotted this 10 foot canoe for $175.00.....








Just kidding about the poser.....WTF! This is my brother! You didn't tell me you were back on here. Please encourage him as he has some cool PNG stuff and a tropical yard (copycat!). BTW I found the canoe in Gorman last Thursday, not PS.
