About “The Tiki”

Earlier today I posted a picture on Twitter and Facebook of our backyard Tiki that was blown over in the current storm. Lots of people have asked about the Tiki. Here’s the background.  The Tiki was made for my grandparents in around 1960 to sit by the pool of their home.  The Tiki is about four and half feet tall.

When the Tiki was delivered, to my grandmother’s horror, it was ahem…anatomically correct. She just couldn’t have this!  So she called out the man who had lovingly hand carved the Tiki and had the poor Tiki neutered.  Yes, our strong, proud Tiki is unfortunately built like a Ken-doll.
