I read this, and after seeing the pictures scrolling through at the top of the page, I couldn't help but thinking that Sepy was a real life Jackie Treehorn...

Technically Ferenc made the shirt, as it says Pollo Del Mar on it.
But he licensed the image from SHAG.
I wear one just like it quite a bit.

I just noticed an interesting pictorial article on Sepy in Rogue Magazine Dec. 1960 which
I'll scan eventually. (Fortunately for Tiki Central that issue also has a hula girl centerfold - and now if I get hit by a meteor the information will still be available for someone else to pick up the torch.)

In the mean time spotted this 1950 Cuban Art Center card on ebay - which you wouldn't find searching for him.

Very interesting! I had no idea he was the "director of an art institute" in Havana. This is where he must have sculpted THESE statues:



Is this what the article is about?
I only knew of his involvement with La Bodeguita Del Medio:


Both excerpts are from Pete Moruzzi's stellar book "Havana Before Castro"

And would you look at that!: They are selling his Viking boat bed!:

That even tops a Witco "Primitive bed room set"!

The article is about him lamenting his exile from cuba and yes he's making gold statues. However the statue model in the article is not the models mentioned. Other photos include him hanging out in a pool with his harem of nude models. Photography by Bunny Yeager - one of the models actually looks like Nani Maka from Pagan Island! Which is very possible considering Bunny Yeager was the set photographer on that movie and both photoshoots would be set in Miami circa 1960.

So apologies for the scan delay - but its at the top of my list. There's a pagan island article I'll be scanning too so the models can be compared.

Wow, that sounds great! I can just imagine that swinging scene in Florida in the 60s, with Bunny Yeager, Lewis vanDercar and now Sepy!

I thought some context would be important regarding one of those statue models...

Reel to Reel cover Aphro-disia

Anita Ekberg was a Martian beauty in Abbott and Costello Go to Mars.

Tiki Central folks may enjoy this Anita film clip for the music

What music? There was music? How could I have missed music?

Tasty morsel in that clip though. Thanks.

Fascinating character. Like a Forrest Gump who knew exactly what was going on at all times. Would love to have gone to some of his parties.

Excellent! Man, those communists really messed up Sepy's art scene there in Havana: His own art center full of babes, his Mojito bar- what more could a Baron from Eastern Europe want!
