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.

Everyone in L A knows that our movie celeb 6th Street Bridge is scheduled fo demo. CeCe and I Took some pix yesterday hoping that the demo had not commenced. The equipment is there and it’s full speed ahead for the work crews. Angelenos, go get your pix while you can

one of my fave Tiki's, carved by Patel, purchased from Big ED (TikiBroker) photo bombed one of my pix. He’s 3 1/2 ft. tall.

Some of my favorite Tiki-related photos are of people. I've met some great people through our shared interest in Tiki. And getting photos of artists with their work is always fun. Here's Dave Hansen of Wisconsin with one of his great hand-carved signs. (I didn't buy this one but bought several other carvings from him):

Trips to Oceanic Arts always feel like Christmas morning, and I always have to bring my camera along. I liked this 2010 shot of Leroy at work:

Here's Bamboo Ben and Vicki at the International Tiki Marketplace last year. I used to loiter around their store (before they decided they didn't need one) soaking up Tiki atmosphere and generally being annoying:

And here's a group photo of us Tiki folk at the La Palma Chicken Pie Shop in Anaheim (Kevin, Jody, me, Daniel Paul, Beachbum Berry, bigbrotiki and Naomi:

Of course sometimes it's just about the Tikis themselves. Here's a 2008 shot from Sam's Seafood (now Don the Beachcomber) that I often use in my lectures on Tiki history. I usually drop this shot in around the portion of the program where I talk about the decline/deevolution of Polynesian Pop in the 1970s/80s:

And of course, I have to include a Disney image. This is from Disneyland in 2012:


So there are a few samples. Another 660 Tiki-related photos can be found on my "Tiki & Polynesian Pop" album on Flickr:

Spring is early in SoCal. Checked on some of my Cymbidiums today and was surprised by the flower spike. Palm frond Tiki by Leroy.
