Sorry to indulge, like a forcing you to watch slides of a family vacation. I have too many fav tiki photos. I apologize ahead of time. Great thread by the way.

I'll group my fav photos.

FIRST REAL TIKI
from Bishop Museum


I think the following is significant because it is like a forerunner to today's and mid-centaury tiki bowls. This item as well as another there are from the kingdom era (around 140 years ago, after the worship of tiki was sort of abolished by the ali'i moi. It ended up sort of dinnerware, not really ancient.

from Pu`uhonua O Hônaunau National Historical Park on the Big Island of Hawai`i. Disclaimer: the Park will and has replaced these ki`i or tiki when worn down by the elements. They are authentic in design but not ancient.



GOOD TIKI
Moai from the book, "The Statues That Walk" and documentary, "Mystery of Easter Island". Kualoa Valley, O'ahu.

Outside Polynesian Cultural Center

Outside Bishop Museum

Inside Hilo Hatties

Outside the entrance of Trader Vic's Atlanta


BAD TIKI



MY TIKI
My little SUV stickers put on before I discovered TC and the movement

My little ivory Ku from my mom's collection

My recently acquired framed tiki

Some of my Marquesan Salt and Pepper shakers

A rare painting I did over 30 years ago. The only one I kept-foreshadowing

Lastly my all time favorite photo a recent experiment in lighting-cool foreground, warm background

Tom "Thor" Thordarson painting severed heads on Marina the Fire Eating Mermaid's dress at Tiki Oaisis 2014. It's a horrible job, but somebody's gotta do it.

Nice merging the mid-Century Tiki with that from the ancient Hawaiians.
