We were guessing that the smaller tikis were from Barney West. The cuts were simple, but experienced. He knew where to go with the minimal number of cuts to make a figure. Many of the cast tikis have similar bodies and features. I'm curious how many more there are? So many of the originals have probably succumb to the elements. These won't!!

So as usual when I cast a new mold
I run to the Mai-Kai to see if I can
find an original carving or at least
an old casting.
All I could find of this guy was the
bodiless head laying in the bushes
with it's Al Jolson paint job.

Will!!! I keep seeing these cool statues that you have cast (out of concrete?) but what's the story with the molds? Are these molds you have made? Are these old vintage molds from the Mai Kai?

I would be interested in the history also.
