I know people need to make a buck but they got to start to draw the line somewhere. Some of them are outright fraud.

It would be hard to say where this is from, though doubtful it is from the Pacific. I have never seen a piece quite like this in my meso-american travels. Though I did see lots of lava figurines in this size in Guatamala. The irony with this guy though is that he has a TV skull mug, and no where in the listing did he use the word tiki!

Unusual piece. It would be worth a try at $5.00 but $14 seems like a reach.
