Picked this carving up yesterday it stands 21 in tall with a removable tiki shield that exposes a rather large member, some repair to the shield and a few natural cracks to the two piece base, does anyone have any info on it?

This was sold in Hawaiian souvenir shops as decor for the rumpus room. There is a photo of an older version with a mechanical member in a book called "Tiki Modern".
