Akua – Tiki 12" Hawaiian Heritage (Natural & Stained)

Makana Hut’s 12 inch Hawaiian Museum replica Akua Tiki, made out of solid wood. The original sculpture is the only one of its kind in the world and is now part of a priceless collection of the Hawaii Museum, Honolulu. Today it is considered by experts to be the largest and finest of this class of portable image.

Cleaning out the garage, came across my driftwood tiki necklaces I used to carve over 10 years ago! I estimated I caved well over a thousand of these little guys. Carved about 20 a week when I taught surfing at Ventura Surf School for the kids over 2 summers. On Facebook people are shared photos of theirs! It’s pretty cool to see where they’ve all ended up! #tiki #tikitony #tikiart #tikicarving #tikinecklace #carving #tikiroom #disney #disneyart #disneyland #tradersams #tropical #tradervics #driftwood #ventura #venturasurfschool #surf #surfart #beach #beachart

AKUA KAI TIKI | KONA STYLE REPLICA 20"

Tiki Akua Kai measures 20″ tall, made out of solid wood, monkey pod. The image is possibly one of the finest kona-style images, presenting all of the dynamic qualities of the style and the abstraction of the headdress, hair and eyes, which in this instance are triangular, faceted elements set into the hair pattern.

Original: Pitt-Rivers Museum. Choose: Stained and Natural Finish

After a 5 year hiatus, I painted a new black velvet for tiki oasis. Hoping to finish a few more of these small 8x10 or so black velvets. The technique is totally different than my normal paintings, so it took one mess up velvet to get this. The effect is pretty cool. #blackvelvet #blackvelvetpainting #tiki #tikicarving #disney #disneyland #tikiroom #adventureland #tikioasis #tikibar #cocktail #palmtree #tikihut #beach #beachshack #surf #handmade #ventura #california #retro #modern #pinup #tikibird #tangaroa #tikitony

Awe, nearly complete! One last pose with the chisel for the camera before this tiki gets shipped off to Tiki Land, just behind AdventureLand. Haha. Imagine the life of this dude, just carving tikis on the beach in paradise!! #tiki #tikiart #tikicarving #tikicarver #tropical #woodworker #sketch #drawing #sharpie #pencil #bic #tikitony #hawaii #aloha

I love that tiki fans are all creative and filled with a spirit of fantasy. I’m always impressed, but not surprised, when I see the cool home tiki bars people have created. Usually they have a strong memory from childhood, going to a Trader Vic’s, or the Tiki Room at Disneyland and recreate that magic they felt when they were transported to Polynesian paradise, even if it was a faux plastic Polynesia with made up gods. Here’s to a wonderful weekend dudes!!
