Another oddity- just picked this up today, I was thinking it didnt look like a Tiki exactly, but the price was right. It is carved hardwood, finished on the back, and has the (so far useless to me) on the base "Tung-U, God of the V.L."




Just apply some paint stripper and restain that guy a slightly darker colour and he would look quite respectable in any tiki bar.




Thanks Much (and Thank you to Bigbro as well) for the identification. I'm tempted to strip the paint but it appears to have been on it for many years. Meanwhile this weekend I found a really cool "modern" style Tiki dated 1957. I'll post that on Tiki finds in a minute.

Picked this fellow up in Fernandina Beach on Thursday. He looks Polynesian to me, and is signed on the back. Papuan perhaps? (Or Papuan style at least- the signature looks like it might be Aubert or Joubert? Then there is an additional lower case text that I can't make sense of - the loop around the first name might form an elaborate C? Maybe it says Cupertino? Ring any bells on the west coast?
