Actually, there weren't that many miscategorized, so it didn't take long.

I just saw a whole flock of P4 birds fly over!
Sven, glad somebody is doing some work around here!

I do have TIki Modern and the Book of Tiki but missed that part.
But Dam that bird looks even MORE like the Partridge Family cartoon bird.

And I like the mystery tiki question things on TC.
Keep em coming.

But then witco animals art is not as tiki as say Starwars or legos or bacon or pie.

But understanding how WITCO art (including a lot of Tiki art) was being conceived, by going back to its beginnings - would that maybe be of interest to the Tiki collector? Maybe…just maybe?

Yep, I thought that was of interest. Actually that bird (P4 and the drawing) reminded me of another midcentury bird - not quite the same lineage, but maybe not that far stylistically.

Well, it's interesting to ME. Although I will have to reread Tiki Modern since I failed the quick quiz.

I particularly like the modernist witco art such as 'Birds' partly shown in bigbrotiki's post above but have respect for the more primitive stuff too.

Thanks guys…it was more a rhetorical question directed towards the nitpicking ignorance of Grog, who as an animator should have displayed more insight about the broader meaning of art and its origins.
