Souvenir Friday- Tiki Statue From Adventureland

I always enjoy finding a souvenir that falls into two of my collecting interests. This lovely statue made by Coco Joe's in Hawaii was once sold at the Adventureland Bazaar. A guest could watch the Enchanted Tiki Room and purchase a tiki to take home. Based upon the price sticker, I would say it is circa late 1960s. The addition of flowers is very nice and adds a touch of color.

Oh cool, a tiki from Adventureland! I it carved from wood? Or is it cast from some material?

I used to have a bunch of these from my trips to Hawaii. Coco Joe's tikis whether statues, paperweights or key chains were very popular in the late 60's early 70's. Strangely my collection of these are long gone. If I remember correctly some of these were made of lava known as the "Legends of Lava". Thanks for sharing!

That is a real gem. Had a great trip to Maui a few years back and
came back with as many Tikis as I could get away with. A few
guys were carving them by the roadside near Kihei, so they were
from local wood witch was nice.
