Great find! Do you own them, or just find them? Would be hard to find a use for them. The handles look great. Can you get a better image?

Tiki David,

Looks like the same doors at the Kon Tiki in Montreal.

Yes the do seem to be the same doors,in the drawing,
but in any of the photos I've seen,the doors are not clearly seen.
(this does not mean clearer photos do not exist,just that I have not seen them.)
Since ,Montreal & Cleveland were built about the same time,could this just be a artistic conception of what the Montreal location would/could /should look like?
The reason I ask is ,IF I should choose to sell these,would I be out of line
saying they are, "the only ones known to exist"/"one of a kind"/"very rare"?

This is probably already posted somewhere on TC, but I couldn't find it. 3 of the carved tikis are in the pool atrium at the now Cleveland Rennaisance Hotel.

Thinking of Tiki David. What a great urban archaeologist and contributor to Tiki Central. He will be missed.

Here is another postcard I spotted showing the interior of the Cleveland Kon Tiki.

Holy COW! I have that big-headed seated marquesan tiki from the Kon Tiki Cleveland in the last photo!

I got her (and it is a she) from an old man that rescued her when the Kon Tiki closed. I've been scouring the net to find a pic of her in situ since I picked her up a few years ago.. And there she is, behind the fried rice at the buffet!!!

Thanks Dusty!! I'm sending you a pm!

Will post some pics of her & more info tonite if I get a chance for those interested.

Would love to see some pics of the Tiki. I clipped the image of the card from ebay a while back, so I don't have a good scan, but here is a close up of the Tiki.



Did anybody on Tiki Central get that card for a better close-up?

Ok here she is. I will post better pictures of her once my bar is finished. She is an amazing and unique piece, being that she's a female big-headed Marq, she's seated (the base is a seperate piece that she fits into with pegs, and that she's got such prominent, well... t&a. Then again, this is Steve Crane we're talking about

Anyway hope you enjoy these quick shots, thanks to Dusty once again for the pic of her in situ.
