That "Wheeping Tiki" candle is one of my favourite concepts in Tiki-dom! I was wheeping when I had to decide that I would not have enough room in my "Hunters & Colectors" chapter to properly display and describe it. It looks so cool when the wax tears start running!(I saw some used ones.)
"Hula Dancers and Tiki Gods" unfortunately missed the opportunity to show it off by describing it on page 195 merely as "Tiki Candle- The farther down they burn, the more character they get". There are two on page 161 of Tiki Quest, and there are other designs.
A while back, Hilo Hattie's was using an old mold of one for their candles, but they neglected to drill the tear duct holes!
About two years ago someone was selling several old stock ones on e-bay, unused and in the original package. Fatu Hiva, didn't you get some?
