I think the name "Tabu" for a place is my second favorite right after "Tiki". I wonder if we will ever get to see a close up of that building. From the distance that black Tiki on the wall (assuming it is one) looks like an insect.

So that "insect" logo Tiki looks (again) more like a Melanesian carving. It was pretty big compared to those cars (though those Fiats are tiny) --and did it have red glowing eyes?

Ahaaah! Originally I was thinking that logo Tiki might have been inspired by a flat PNG carving in this style:



....only with its arms up instead of down. But I had no explanation for that lump between the Tabu logo's legs.

But with this rendering it becomes clear that what we have here is another Uli figure as inspiration:



Probably even this specific one.
