Tiki Time!

Check out this guy! I bought him (oh, yes, it’s a HIM- you can tell) at a local antique shop. Whatta deal!

The tag said it was from New Zealand. I don’t know if that’s true- but I LOVE HIM. He will have a Very Special Place in my spare room, aka “The Tiki Room”. There are lots of other tribal and indigenous art pals for him to hang out with up there, because that’s an interest of mine. I love anything that has been hand-hewn of locally available materials. I also like to occasionally hand-hew things myself out of locally available materials around the house and yard.

Sooooo, if you ever happen to stay over at our house, THIS is what will be watching you. Sweet dreams!

    Hey, I didn’t even know there was a textile fair in Brimfield- that would be right up my alley, too!

    The Tiki Room needs to be put back together after The Great Studio Upheaval of 2006! But it will happen! This guy is carved and painted wood- at least 3 feet tall!
