I saw this camoflauged (white on white) Tikiroom Pele hiding in someone's front yard. About 2 feet tall, looks like it's concrete or possibly resin. Anyone tell me anything about him?

(Aside: Pele’s preferred pronouns are “she” and “her”)

Looks like a “Big Lots” Pele. Haven’t seen one in person but at some point in the 2006-2009 era they were sold at that discount chain store. Several threads here mention/show them if you search by name.

There "SHE" is Thanks Joshua. I had searched "concrete Pele" and "resin Pele" but didn't find anything
I always thought the Disney Tikiroom Pele looked decidedly male, this is how I picture the goddess Pele

Rolly Crump had some... interesting interpretations. And the Big Lots variation is not particularly flattering.

I love the paint jobs some of these have gotten!
