Very cool Tiki, can you tell us where it was when you were 5? Also, what year that would that have been?

I love feedback! Please let me know what you think... what kinds of adventures can you see Panda getting into?


Sandra - LOVE your art work. One of my closest friends is a big burly Scottese (Scottish / Chinese) man we all lovingly refer to as "Panda". I do believe his Facebook wall is about to get SATURATED with your artwork (with links and credits, of course!). I'm hoping your panda character has a Facebook page of his own because I'd love to follow him. I'll be looking for him on the big blue F.

Hello,

My name is Jefferson. I have a tiki mask that my Great Uncle got in WWII. I don't know much about the origin of the mask or it's value. I have searched, but do not find any like it.

It was given to me as a gift several years ago and I am very proud to have it on my wall. Can anyone give me an idea of what I have? Any information would be greatly appreciated.



Thank you very much!

This does not look like it has the age or patina of an item from WWII era.
Don't really want to call it a Tiki, more of a Kitsch wall art thing.

Hope this helps, I can see you are really into tiki by the sign to the left of the wall thing.
Welcome to TC.

The patina is not right because the mask was in my Great Uncle's house when another room caught fire. When I inherited this piece, I cleaned off the smoke damage and put floor wax on the mask to protect the wood.

The mask was taken as a "war trophy" in WWII by my Great Uncle in the South Pacific...that's the family story. I have found similar masks from the Philippines, but none exactly like this one.

And...thank you for the welcome.
