I don't think I have ever posted here as I don't typically create anything tiki. I did find this paddle at a marine salvage place in Miami a few years ago and had the idea of painting it like the one on the front cover of the book Oceanic Art.

Very nice paddle but I'm afraid I have no idea what a "Hawaiian thing-a-ma-jig-hula-do-dad" is.

Ha! A tourist at Disney World actually said that to me about a Benzart tiki I was wearing. I thought it was hilarious, so I use it as a signature line.

Hey, I thought it was from the Cook Islands. Solomons? Oh well, I dig the design as well.

Nice paddle, by the way Geoff. I have the book too and love the design. You can paint my paddle any day.
