Cool. On the cover, the giant stone faces have a different nose and mouth, but the eyes are similar to the Marquesan butterfly priestess -- on the comic's panel you dug up, the nose and mouth match hers more closely, but the eyes don't have the eye lids!

Herge knew how to disguise his sources.

the carvings above look to be like punholdayan, house post rice gods of the ifugao and igorot peoples from the phillippines.

Nice answer hottiki. Do you know why they are called Islas Filipinas? Something to do with Spain...

Tonga's Tiki, Tangaroa or God of the sea, right?

when we were in hawaii, at the building that my dad's company was building, some hawaiian construction workers found this during excavation. they threw it away with a shovel since it was tabu.

Ja ja! Johnny Dollar, nice try! You almost make believe that that Ku was sacred and real, but then I thought a Tiki sculpted from marble in Hawaii is too weird, so that made me suspicious...
I like your style! You are the J.D. Salinger of Tiki!

So, here's yet ANOTHER priceless image brought to you by your friendly neighbor, the Z-man.


Hey everyone(that means you), post your pictures too!
