I'm going to have to do a lot of digging, but I have an old design book that credits Saul Bass as the creator of this Tiki. I've seen this guy in a few places, not just Mishimas. Dug Miller and I bought two masks from Mashimas years ago at a random flea market. I ended up with the wood one that hung inside and Dug got the reflective parking lot sign. They're both THE logo Tiki masks. Unfort I traded mine for something worth the trade years ago but Dug still has his. I'll post the pics when I eventually find them.

Yes please.

Yikes! That A-Frame looks a little scary.

I've been looking since yesterday, but finally found the Mishima's parking sign. It's taken at an angle showing how it reflects light. This is the back of Dug's front door. You should see the rest of his house.

This is getting off of the subject, but here's another photo of Dug's. Just to the right of the previous photo.

I just saw this post. Here are some pictures of the other Mishimas tiki mask carving. This is the wood one that hung inside the Restaurant. A few years back this was part of a trade that Kiara and I made as he mentioned in a previous post. It is in the original condition. I had it displayed for many years in my tiki lounge (The Nauga Hydaway) but have recently shifted a few things around..as we all do..and it is not currently in situ. Also have the paper menu that has definately seen better days.

I recently acquired one of the Mishima's menus that Tiki Kate had posted.



The drinks on the back.

The before diner standards.




Tropicals.



I like these Oriental ones, including the Saketini and Sakehattan





After diner and beer.
