Malaysia? huh....in no way am I an expert in malaysia culture, but I did live there for 6 months, and I just don't remember seeing that style of carvings... but maybe?

Good morning all. I ran across these two wall hangings. They are only 10"x20" but are nicely carved. To me they look Phillippine. Has anyone seen anything like these before?
Front.


Back (note MDF pegboard)


Any ideas who made them?
Thanks.

I would guess a couple of vintage Castilian pieces
and yes, they are not Tiki.

Those booby ladies and this set of carvings




are both performing the traditional Thai greeting the "wai", it is quite common to find carvings such as these near the door of a house to greet visitors.

The hats on the ladies don't look thai though?

It's been a while, but I've come across something pretty cool, and I'd like to tap the vast knowledge here on TC.

Found both of these items yesterday. I believe they're both from New Guinea, but I'd very much like to get some additional details as to precisely what they are. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Beachin808, these shakers were made by Treasure Craft for Disney World's Polynesian Village. This set was also made with a base labeled "Hawaii" or "Florida." The other 2 variations can be seen on Ooga Mooga.
