  2. Unusual carvings!
    Is there history that goes with them?

  3. Pat, the tiki is a traditional type of stylized carving of the human form. They are now made in quantity for the tourist trade throughout the Polynesian Islands.

    The front-most one in the photo has holes carved in the top so it can be used as a pencil holder!
