Last fall I had the idea to build a home theater and then decorate it with Oceanic Art. By accident I found a vintage tiki bar so I added a tiki bar room next to the theater. I found two tikis from an antique store in San Diego. One of them looks similar to the tiki on page 205 in "The Book of Tiki." The book says the one in the picture is from the Hanalei Hotel in Sand Diego.



This is what my tiki looks like:



At the base of the two tikis the name "Kapu Tiki" is wood burned.



I am looking for any information on the origin of the two tikis. The antique store said they acquired the tikis at an estate sale. They think they are from the 1960s or 70s since the other items in the sale were from that era.

Thanks!

The tikis that you purchased are carved on Siargao Island in the Philippines by The Kapu Tiki Co. I think the company started around 1999.

Thanks for the heads up.

I went to the kapu tiki website and then to
http://www.secretspotsurfshop.com. It was at this website you can see the ones for sale.

I now know what kind of wood their made of, cocowood. The ones for sale are all different than the ones I have.

The second Tiki is also copied from the Book of Tiki. Can you find it?

You have me stumped on that one. There are some similarities with the tiki on page 112 but only with the forehead and eyes.

Thank's for pointing that out. I don't think I would have found it. The one I have is almost exactly like the one in the picture,



Here is another picture:

I'm in love with this sign.

Very Very nice, wonder how the Boss would like it if I slowly migrated the Tiki out of the bar and into the theater room?

your crown molding is top notch!
