Here's a picture of a newer Elliot Easton Gretsch. I've seen a depiction of this tiki god before, but I don't know who it is. I don't think it's Ku, and it doesn't have the tall headress like Lono. Any thoughts?

JTiki gave an excellent explanation, summarized as Lono has the exaggerated headpiece.

Amybean provided this instructive diagram:


In my opinion, you have the Tiki god Ku.

As bigbro sez, that's a House Industries tiki clipart image. And like 5 other "dingbats" in that set, that image was based on a Coco Joe souvenir (2nd from right)...

That's one of the many images posted by Bay Park Buzzy when he started a thorough catalog of Coco Joe (and related) tikis, on
this post of the Coco Joe thread. Coco Joe calls that tiki a Ku, but they weren't necessarily always worried about authenticity.

Art I did for the last Tiki Magazine. The tip of the iceberg as far as idols go.

Educate and decorate at the same time.
