ATP,

Shoot, you turned the page. Oh well. Here is your Harvey's bucket mug full of rum!



Trader Dick's never had a bucket mug BTW.

I was trying to figure out what god this statue depicts and found this forum. From what I've seen, it kind of looks like Kane or Lono.

My great uncle asked me to research it online. He had it carved here in Hawaii by a Samoan artist 40 years ago. It's monkey pod wood. It's approximately 37 inches high, 22 inches wide, and 19 inches deep. He wanted me to find out its approximate value, and what I've seen online is around $300 or so. I don't know if the age increases the value or not.

Apologies for my ignorance... any suggestions would be appreciated to point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Any clue what area this carving is from? It appears to be a canoe carving with either an infant offering/sacrifice or possibly a soul canoe for a departed soul. It's a very interesting carving and I've searched several books and online and can't find anything like it. To me it resembles a Maori carving the most.

It looks to be based on Maori art, but the artist has taken some artistic license
with the traditional/classic approach.

Found these two Tiki carvings today. Looks like someone tried to copy Witco style? These came from an estate in San Jose, CA. They appear to be carved columns. Anyone familiar with the carver or possibly the location they came from?







Thanks

PTD
