Oh my god! it's the bride of Seamus' mug. Seriously though, it looks hand-made and Mayan. Not tiki.

Well I don't recognize it as Mayan, nor any particular style I have seen through the Americas, but it certainly looks Meso-American. I don't know as I would go so far to that it is "not tiki", but I would say it certainly is not a poly-pop piece

I should start a thread "What is Tiki?" as I have LOTS of cool stuff from the Pan-Pacific region that many might be consider Tiki, but is not of the poly pop genre. I mean if Easter Island is Tiki, is Peruvian/Inca? Wasn't that what Thor H. tried to prove?

What do you mean by that? Its not from the Poly Pop era and its clearly not any style or form from the South Pacific.

As such, I have to agree with Chiki Tiki -- this piece is not tiki.

Speaking of TJ Artisan, I've got quite a few of those "masterpieces" in my collection --

Ceramic Surfing Monkey (with the blue striped swimsuit)
Ceramic Hamburger (3 decker too - very rare)
Ceramic Elvis Bust (in the pink high collar shirt)

I love em all -- but they ain't tiki!

So what is the Tiki Bob Mug? That aint Tiki, neither is half the Trader Vic Mugs. Coconuts, Hula Mugs, Drunken Men on barrels, etc... those aint Tiki. Who makes the rules? I bet that anyone of you who came across this mug would snatch it up in a second and start screaming TIKI TIKI TIKI!

No, I jus't don't care for it. It doesn't ping my Tiki radar. Some things 'ping', and others just 'pong'.

(You can look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls!)

As for Tiki Bob, he is a great modern take on the tiki mug - a 50's abstraction of the tiki aesthetic. He is as close to pure perfection as I have ever seen. So simple, so clean, yet so undeniably tiki. PING! PING PING PING PING!!!

Kokomo you seem upset that this piece isn't getting the TC Tiki 5 star approval rating, really what do you care. YOU obviously liked it. Isn't that all that matters? "Tiki" or not?

This is the response I was looking for! So address the statement I also made ""What is Tiki?" as I have LOTS of cool stuff from the Pan-Pacific region that many might be consider Tiki, but is not of the poly pop genre. I mean if Easter Island is Tiki, is Peruvian/Inca? Wasn't that what Thor H. tried to prove?"

Maybe some of us have a distaste of Mexican or Central American tribal work (or African) being flogged as 'Tiki', and I can understand that. As thechikitiki was saying "I likes them all, but ain't Tiki IMHO", I too know and love it well (and have a collection of many OLD pieces), but what about Tuhacan & Inca from Peru, Chile and Bolivia? (as this piece looks as it might be) What and where is the line drawn? When is it Poly culture and not Meso-American? I have some Pre-Colombian Tuhacan pieces I bet I could debate as being 'Tiki', and when Indonesian & New Guinea long houses and other Austral/Asian things have been CLEARLY used in the poly-pop genre, who is to truly say?

BTW I like a good debate, and I am not looking to have a flame war, I just want to stir this idea around to see what comes of it on a positive level.

I respect what you're saying, but if you slapped a nice coat of emerald green glaze on that puppy how far away would it be from this?
