Woops, I almost missed this post. That Reef place mat is ace, Sabu! It clearly proves that there were various carvers involved with the Reef, lookey 'ere:

This definitely is the Tiki Andres Bumatay was carving when this article (unfortunately folded) was published, (which is the missing link to my Bumatay page in the BOT)

This also reminded me that I own a very similar strange Bumatay-style ceramic statue, collected in the mid-90s:

It was obviously intended to be a lamp...
