Found this video on-line that has a peak at the statues in front of the Hawaiian Isel around the 37 second mark.

Advertisement for a Deviled Egg sculpture by Lewis Vandercar I spotted in Playboy Magazine April 1963 page 166.
http://martiantiki.com/vandercar-deviled-egg/ (600DPI scan)



A search for deviled egg vandercar turned up this site and photo of a similar sculpture on his estate.

Perhaps someone could design a deviled egg mug in honor of him.

edit 7/3/15 above url is down saved this from google

old ebay auction i saved

Lewis-Van-Dercar-Sculpture-Miami-Artist-Listed-Vandercar
Item Sold Feb 02, 2014 19:03:55 PST
Winning bid: US $99.99
[ 1 bid ]
Shipping:$13.65 Economy Shipping
Item location: Evanston, Illinois, United States
Seller: gneissguise (1022 )
Nice sculpture by popular Miami artist Lewis Van Dercar (1913-1988), 9" tall, heavy (approx 5 1/2 lbs), made of cement with gold/silver finish, signed Van Dercar and VAN. No known edition; presumed to be a unique piece. Van Dercar was an interesting figure who considered himself to be a warlock or magus; he is perhaps best known his cement/concrete sculptures and built a large scale sculpture garden at his home. This appears to be a trantric pose of some kind in good condition. No reserve!

Original Oil on Canvas Painting

Artist: Lewis VanDercar (Van Dercar) (1913-1989)

Title: N/A

Signed: Yes, signed "VAN" in lower left. VanDercar signed on verso of canvas, with 63 (likely the date) and illegible writing.

Size: In View is 15" wide x just under 24" high, Frame is approximately 22" Wide x 31" high



This is a very intersting abstract painting by Miami/Zypher Hills., FL artist Lewis VanDercar. The painting is a dark scene with a couple of figures in the forefront, one appears to be seated, one standing, with a tree looming in the front left of the scene. The sun or moon appears to be peaking through in the upper right quadrant, and there is either water, or possibly some type of hole in the ground behind the standing figure. The paint has a heavy texture, and it is a very attractive piece of art. The canvas is in very good shape, with no noticed damage or repairs. There is one small chip in the heavy black paint, please see photo 5, in which I circled the chip in yellow. The signature on the front says only VAN. It is possible that the rest of the signature is hidden behind the frame, or just wasn't signed. The back of the canvas has the typical VanDercar script signature in marker, along with what I believe to be a date, 63. The frame is made of wood, and painted green. It has a number of dings and chips in the paint which could be filled and repainted.
