This is where we will post pictures of Tikis in their natural habitat. Pictures from museums or books are welcome too... Any real tiki from Oceania. No Polynesian pop, no Tiki Modern. Only art made by natives from the islands of the Pacific.
Example:
Weird Tiki rite:

This would be the ideal "Mondo","shocking" picture. Shows the natives interacting with our subject, and it's a bit scary.


Mondo film
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A mondo film is a documentary film, sometimes resembling a pseudo-documentary, usually depicting sensational topics, scenes, and situations.

The genre started with the Italian film Mondo Cane (A Dog's World, also a mild Italian curse; "mondo" literally means "world") made in 1962 by Paolo Cavara, Gualtiero Jacopetti, Franco Prosperi and proved quite popular. Mondo films are often easily recognized by name, as even English language mondo films often included the term "mondo" in their titles. Over the years the film makers wanted to top each other in shock value in order to draw in audiences. Cruelty to animals, accidents, tribal initiation rites and surgeries are a common feature of a typical mondo. Much of the action is also staged, even though the film makers may claim their goal to document only "the reality".

The Russ Meyer film Mondo Topless was one of the few "documentaries" restricted to the old midnight movie circuit of the pre-VCR era, as it explored strip clubs in 1960s San Francisco, at a time when strip clubs were a novelty in the United States restricted to centers of port-city decadence such as San Francisco.

Other examples of movies in this genre include Mondo di Notte by Gianni Proia, Mondo Balordo by Roberto Bianchi Montero, and Mondo Ford by Ricardo Fratelli.

The eighties saw a resurgence of mondo movies, though now they focused almost solely on onscreen death, rather than cultures of the world. The Faces of Death series is probably the best known example of this type of mondo, or 'death' movie. The producers at this time still used some faked footage, passed off as real, but the majority of the footage was legitimate. This includes scenes of real autopsies, suicides, accidents, and intercontinental executions. Executions done in America were faked, only because it is illegal to tape or observe live executions there.

The mondo film in the 21st century has transformed into a very 'in your face', gory spectacle, as seen in the Faces of Gore and Traces of Death series. There is considerably less fake footage and many of these use news footage of accidents from the far east.

Strange red creature.

This picture is good but there is no natives and it is not very shocking... But at least it's In situ.
Made in New Zealand.

Marquesas red idol. Made of human bone.

Museum shot... This is great because the object is so beautiful, but there is no context or reference... Almost no shock value. 1 point out of 3 in the shocking Mondo chart.
Now everyone, show your pictures of "real" Tikis. Mahalo!

Since it was moved from the spiritual power place of Raivavae Island, it is considered a bad luck Tiki, supported by the fact that the schooner which brought it over sank shortly thereafter.

I read somewhere that they moved the Gauguin Tiki indoors because it was getting damaged from being outside... Or they put a roof to protect it.

Which brought up this question for me, for which I created a separate thread, so as not to derail this one:

That was included in a comic strip Tintin: Flight 714 to Sydney " by Hergé, the scenario is very "mondo":

I do not have the comics near me, but I'm sure that this tiki is present.

Close, but no cigar. The eyes really seem similar because of the lids and their size in relation to the face, but the rest of the facial features are not Marquesan enough. The B&W photo above is a nice early shot of the "butterfly priestess". See description and recent photo here:

http://www.pbif.org/WebGallery/Default.aspx?directory=2211&action=View&sortorder=Ascending&dirsortorder=Ascending&file=2816

She was the wife of Manuitoaa, whose head I am talking about here:

They are both found on the same temple site.

laojia is right. That is the Tintin Tiki... I am a huge comic (or band desinee) fan, and found the picture posted above on the Herge files...
