In the Tiki Room

Found this fella in a junkyard last weekend and OBVIOUSLY he had to come home with me. I’m thinking he is from the South Seas somewhere but I don’t know. Anyone? The stain looks pretty new but the wood looks very old. You can’t tell from this photo, but he is about the size of a Cocker Spaniel. Heavy too. Until I can figure out a decent place to drill some wall anchors, he is hanging off a coat hook on my front door right across from the couch where I watch TV. He just sits there and stares all judgmental and stuff and I’m all, Dude put your fangs back in. It’s not my fault you don’t appreciate the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

    He is so cool! Looks great against the blue. He kind of reminds me of some of those New Jersey Housewives during one of their crazed hissy-fights.

    I think he’s probably from Thailand. The triangular markings on his nose & cheeks are really similar to their traditional tattoos.
    But I’m no anthropologist, it’s just my best guess.
    PS–He’s kind of fabulous.

    I thought that he looked a little Maori to me. A lot of those South Pacific islanders drifted with the currents to the east and settled new places. Is there an anthropology website somewhere? I wonder what Papue New Guinea markings are like? You could hang him out at Halloween with a spotlight on him.
