Thefuzz. The reflection of your foot looks like a dong. If it's a fertility god, it really should have a dong.

Aloha,

NOT Tiki, Pele...

The first ones look Mayan... The second plaques are Philipines prayer plaques...

OK, I picked this tiki head up last weekend it's a little over a foot high and is fairly light weight.



I'm wondering if it was imported by OA from the Philippines because the carving marks on the top
and back of head remind me of some of the tiki's imported by them.



If you can tell me anything about this Ku I'd appreciate it.



aloha, tikicoma

Oh, I sold one of those several years ago and it had a Philipines sticker on the bottom...

Nice.

Now here's a strange one. Picked this mug up today. Not sure if it is a "pure" Tiki mug. No makers mark but really well made and heavy. The only mark on it is the Sizzler Steak House logo. It looks and feels vintage but I'm stumped. Anyone have any info?

This one has me stumped. It's made of fiberglass and stands about 3 feet tall. It kind of reminds me of something you'd see in an amusement park or something. I didn't see anything like it in the Orchids of Hawaii catalogs here, so . . .

Has anyone seen one of these before??


THANKS!

It's clearly modeled after the Peanut mug of the same design.

Yeah, that's what made me think Orchids of Hawaii decor item, but so far no go.

I should add that it is completely round and meant to stand, not a large wall hanging. And it looks to have always been indoors (no wear or fading).

And, it has a solid top that looks like the end of a log. So it's supposed to look like a carving, not like a large mug.
