Either of those tikis get a 'wow' - you know you've got a big room if it can accommodate a tiki bigger than you!

I like the cannibal one

Maori is around 7 ft. Luckily my beams are at 8 ft and the roof peaks up from there.

I'm not sure where I'm gonna put either one of them, but I had to have them.

WOW! Both are cool but that Maori one is to die for. For me it's like either a tiki like that or my wife, haha. Can you tell us a little more of the background of both tiki. Erich you lucky dog.

Thanks

What I've gathered so far...

The maori tiki is exactly like the one in the old Jungle & Sea Imports catalog that was in there showroom. Hang10 found another one in a hotel lobby in hawaii somewhere that was stained darker. The Tonga Lei restaurant had one too, except it had 4 fingers instead of 3. Who carved them originally, I don't know. The bottom is carved "hencho in mexico". So it seems Jungle & Sea Imports claims of importing items from all over the South Pacific might have been stretched slightly lol.

The cannibal is really close to the one at the Kon Tiki Cleveland. Not the same one, but no doubt carved by the same person. Happy Buddah made mention of a hispanic carver who did cannibals. I searched around and came up with the name Demetrio Chavez. Maybe he carved it, maybe not. I think this is going to require a trip to oceanic Arts to ask Bob and Leroy.

Supposedly both tikis were in a liquor store in LA area in the 60's. From there 2 dr's had them in their house. I bought them the guy who bought them from the dr's.
The only LA liquor store I can come up with so far is in this link
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=47899&forum=1&hilite=liquor%20store%20park

So thats what I know so far.
