Alpine Corporation Tiki Fountain with LED Lights

The Alpine Corporation Tiki Fountain with LED Lights is a really cool sculptural water fountain and patio light in one! Measuring 15″ x 15″ x 29″, and weighing 23lbs, this water fountain will look and sound outstanding at your next Tiki party!

Dimensions

  • Size: 15″ x 15″ x 29″
  • Weight: 23lbs

The Details

The Alpine Corporation Tiki Fountain is made of fiberglass, which is a sturdier material than resin. This patio water feature has an internal water pump mechanism that powers the fountain. It does require a bit of assembly, though the assembly is not difficult. Underneath each water-filled bowl is an LED light, and water flows from one bowl to the next.

This unit is not solar or battery powered, but has an 8′ electric cord that plugs into a wall outlet.

You should use distilled water with this fountain so as to prevent mineral build up on the exterior surface. It needs to be re-filled with water approximately every week, and it holds about 6 gallons of water. If you run the pump with no water inside, it is pretty easy to burn out the pump. Don’t do that.

Also, when the temperature dips close to freezing, it’s best to empty any water out, and store this in anticipation of more Tiki-appropriate temperatures!

The Bottom Line

The Alpine Corporation Tiki Fountain is a great product that will produce a wonderful ambiance. Add some dry ice for even more drama!


Design Toscano The Kanaloa (Teeth) Grand Tiki Sculptural Table

The Design Toscano Kanaloa (Teeth) Tiki table sculpture is a very cool patio side table made from resin, and carved to resemble an imposing Tiki statue.

Dimensions

  • Size: 15.5″ x 15.5″ x 20.5″
  • Weight: 14lbs

The Details

Be wary that this unit can easily break, so you may want to weight the bottom down with some additional material if you have the table in the path of foot traffic.

You may want to consider getting a piece of glass cut to the shape of the top of these tables at your local hardware store. The paint will peel off if you leave glasses, wet food, etc. directly on the surface, and glass will protect it. You can re-paint the table, but you will lose most of the detail.

Given the price of this Tiki table, you probably don’t want to leave the table outdoors when not in use. It is easy to break, and is not particularly resistant to UV light.

The Bottom Line

This table pairs nicely with the Design Toscano Grand Tiki Tongue Table Below. These are guaranteed to be a great addition to your Tiki bar!


Design Toscano The Grand Tiki Tongue Sculptural Table

The Design Toscano Grand Tiki Tongue sculptural table is a groovy Tiki Statue built as a side table.

Dimensions

  • Size: 15.5″ x 15.5″ x 20.5″
  • Weight: 23lbs

The Details

These statues are hollow, but give a surprising amount of depth. They are nicely painted, and the wood grain shows up as part of the resin, as opposed to simply a distressed paint look.

Like all resin statues, these units are quite easy to break, so it’s best not to leave them where there is foot traffic that could impact or knock over these Tiki tables. Also, when you receive the table, be sure to open the package immediately to ensure that the statue did not shatter during shipment. It’s better to discover that before the 30 day return period is up!

Before you use the table, you may want to pick up a piece of glass, cut to the shape of the top of these tables, from a local hardware store. The paint is done in such a way that it will peel if you leave glassware and food directly on the surface. The glass will protect the surface while still enabling people to see the details of the table. You can re-paint the table if the paint chips off, but you will lose a lot of detail.

Given the cost of these substantial Tiki tables, you probably don’t want to leave the table outdoors when not in use. It is easy to break, and is not very resistant to UV light. However, the table is fairly light and easy to move, so it’s not difficult to bring it inside when you’re done lounging!

The Bottom Line

This table pairs nicely with the Design Toscano Kanaloa Teeth Table Above. These are certain to be a great addition to your sunken Tiki lounge!


Bits and Pieces – 12 Inch Tall Solar Tiki Statue – Whimsical Light-Up Lawn and Garden Sculpture

The Bits and Pieces Solar Tiki Statue is lots of fun. It combines the classic tiki look with some creative Solar LED lighting to great effect!

Dimensions:

  • Size: 4.5″ x 12″
  • Weight: 2.35lbs

The Details

Embedded in the top of the Tiki statuette is a solar panel, that charges in the light of the day. At night, the interior of the Tiki solar statue glows in the eyes, and in the mouth. Very cool, and charmingly clever. There is also an on/off switch, if necessary.

These statues are not packed extremely well when they are shipped, and many buyers have reported chips that have broken off, or shattered bits of the statues. If that happens in your shipment, be sure to contact Amazon immediately for a replacement, as they should not be broken on delivery!

The Bottom Line

We wish these were packed better, but hopefully yours will arrive intact. If it does, you’ll have a fun solar light up Tiki statue for the garden, sure to entertain and up the vibe!


Design Toscano Easter Island Moai Monolith Sculpture

The Design Toscano Easter Island Moai Monolith Sculpture line is truly remarkable, and is certainly one of our favorites on this list. The Moai statues are available in six sizes, from a small desktop statue to a giant 6′, 92lb colossus! Shown here in the Garden size, which is 12.5″ x 13″ x 24.5″.

Dimensions (Garden Size)

  • Size: 12.5″ x 13″ x 24.5″
  • Weight: 12lbs

The Details

These units are built of cast resin material, and are hollow. They are hand painted in a distressed stone finish, and look and feel quite authentic.

These statues are quite impressive, though buyers should be wary that they are easily broken. Ideally they should be weighted down, and placed in a location where people can’t get at them to try to sit on them or otherwise interact with them. They are fantastic to look at, but can easily break.

What an outstanding addition to a garden, though!

The Bottom Line

If you don’t have kids, pets, or pests that could easily knock down the statue, these are beautiful garden sculptures, in a different league than much of what is on our list today. But if you are in an environment where these will get broken, be wary.


Moonrays 95960 Tiki Themed Outdoor Solar Light, Garden Gnome, Tiki Warrior

The Moonrays Tiki Warrior Outdoor Solar Light is another clever combination of a solar light and a Tiki statue. This statue is made of polyresin and is painted to look like distressed wood. It is hollow inside, and is easily broken, so be sure to properly secure it!

Dimensions

  • Size: 18.5″ tall
  • Weight: 5.6lbs

The Details

At the top of this statue is a solar panel which charges during the day. At night, the eyes of this statue, as well as the torch he is holding, begin to glow with an amber LED light. Very cool!

These statues have a tendency to snap off at the joint between the head and the body during shipping. Be sure to take your statue out of the box when you receive it to confirm it is not broken; if you don’t take it out of the box, it is hard to tell if it’s actually broken, and if you wait too long you won’t be able to return it.

The Bottom Line

Be wary that these units don’t stand up to the weather and outdoor exposure for a particularly long time. They are not the most expensive Tiki statues on our list, but you may want to anticipate replacing this in a year or two after leaving it outside.


Moonrays 95962 Tiki Themed Outdoor Solar Light, Garden Gnome, Island Princess

The Moonrays Island Princess Tiki Statue coordinates with the Tiki Warrior, and looks great together.

Dimensions

  • Size: 20″ x 8″ x 8″
  • Weight: 4.1lbs

The Details

Like the Moonrays Tiki Warrior, this unit has a solar panel on top that charges during the day, and in the evening the eyes of the Island Princess glow with a mild amber hue.

Painted in a distressed wood-like style, these resin statues have a nice flower accent Lei across the top.

Like all poly-resin statues, these units are easily broken. Be sure to properly secure them or leave them in an area where if they topple, they will not hit hard ground.

When you receive the box for this Tiki Light, be sure to check to see if it is damaged. Take it out of the box to confirm there are no cracks, even if you don’t plan on setting it up immediately. If it is cracked, contact Amazon for a replacement immediately.

The Bottom Line

The Moonrays Island Princess is a fun Tiki statue, and coordinates nicely with the Tiki Warrior! They will bring great joy to your next Tiki party as their glowing eyes gaze upon their subjects.


Design Toscano 21 in. Moai Haku Hana Tiki

The Design Toscano 21″ Moai Haku Hana Tiki statue is a fun, cool tiki statue.

Dimensions

  • Size: 21″ x 7″ x 7″
  • Weight: 9lbs

The Details

With bold colors and a cool style, the Moai Haku Hana Tiki Statue will look great in your house, or on the patio space! It is hand-cast, using a mix of crushed stone and resin as a base material. Each unit is then hand painted in the style of the original Tiki statues made throughout the South Pacific.

The Bottom Line

Be sure to secure these pieces to the ground carefully, as if they are knocked over, they can break into many pieces and be irreparable. The inside is hollow, and due to the way these are carved, there are some areas that are quite thin.

This unit is also available as a package with the Moai Haku Pani statue below.


Design Toscano 31 in. Moai Haku Pani Tiki Statue

The Design Toscano Moai Haku Pani Tiki Statue is taller than the Moai Haku Hana statue, and features three hand carved faces in a totem pole design.

Dimensions

  • Size: 31″ x 5″ x 5″
  • Weight: 9lbs

The Details

Like the Moai Haku Hana statue, the Pani is made using a resin material with crushed stone mixed in. This offers a great medium for carving, but it is fragile. The statue is hollow and tall, and is easily broken if topped. Be sure you secure this properly regardless if it is indoors or outdoors.

The Bottom Line

The Moai Haku Pani statues have three interesting faces, and are hand painted in beautiful colors. These statues are quite nice, as long as you are careful with them!

This statue is also available as a package with the Moai Haki Hana statue above.


Design Toscano Tiki God of the Luau Statue

The Design Toscano Tiki God of the Luau statue is a cool, rustic looking Polynesian statue with great styling and a lot of visual interest.

Dimensions

  • Size: 6″ x 5.5″ x 24″
  • Weight: 9lbs

The Details

The God of the Luau is made of the same resin and crushed stone material that makes up most of Design Toscano’s tiki collection. These units are hand-painted, and the amount of detail in these statues is quite impressive.

Like all of Design Toscano’s tiki collection, these units are tall and narrow, and are hollow inside. They can easily tip over and break, due to the amount of carving that goes into these statues.

The Bottom Line

Be sure to properly secure the God of the Luau, as you don’t want to let it break, and risk his wrath on your Tiki bar!


Design Toscano Tiki Gods of the Three Pleasures Statue

The Design Toscano Tiki Gods of the Three Pleasures Statue steps away from the most kitchy styles, and is a more toned down look than some of the other statues on this list.

Dimensions

  • Size: 35.5″ x 9″ x 8.5″
  • Weight:

The Details

Made of resin mixed with crushed stone, and hand painted to look just like wood, these statues have a surprising amount of depth and dynamism.

The Bottom Line

With a tall and narrow frame, these statues are easily toppled, and if they fall over, they will almost certainly break. Be sure to properly secure the Gods of Three Pleasures, as breaking the statue will not bring much pleasure at all!

Click to enlargeEXTRA LARGE HAWAIIAN Tiki Statue Polynesian FOLK ART  Hand Carved Wood Carving Tropical Sculpture

Here is a hand carved and hand waxed Tiki totem (antique finish) standing at 5 feet. This Tiki totem depicts 3 Hawaiian Tiki god: Ku (strength, healing), Kanaloa (ocean, fishing) and Lono (learning, intellect)

This Tiki pole measures 60 inches tall and is made of pine tree.

Each of our statues have been carefully hand-carved by an experienced artist and great attention has been paid to color and detail.

According to archeologists, the tiki gods were a symbol of power, both religious and political to the Polynesian Islands. For centuries, tiki statues have been a form of communication across all cultures. They replicate human nature and depict a part of what we all are. In Polynesian culture it is believed that the tiki god was within the spirit of the statue. Whether statues have hypnotic powers that can protect us from the world of the spirits is intriguing... they certainly have a very dramatic presence.

These tiki statues are great for a tropical, island decor theme. Also perfect for your tiki bar or luau to add a Polynesian atmosphere!

Also a great gift idea with much ALOHA!

Shipping Cost to Continental US: 72.50. Please contact us for other locations.

Hawaiian Tikis

Big Island tikis

What are Tikis?

What are these mythical symbols and how do they fit into Hawaiian culture? If you've ever seen the wooden, novelty representations of the ancient hand-carved figures, you will notice by their readied stances and stern facial expressions that a tiki was intended to represent very important, respected authorities, namely principal gods, guardians and spirit powers.

Very few tiki lovers are aware of the unique history and spirituality of tiki images, but even a brief description of the ancient purpose of the tiki will give you a glimpse at the very essential role symbolism played in traditional Hawaiian society.

The Tikis' Origins

The first inhabitants of Hawaii voyaged from Polynesia about one thousand years ago, bringing with them religious and spiritual convictions. The many gods of Hawaii and Polynesia were represented by tikis. The name tiki can refer to many different types of images used throughout Polynesia, from images used ceremonially by Maori tribes in New Zealand, to the moa carvings on Easter Island, to modern day images displayed in Hawaii.

In Polynesian mythology, tiki often represents the first human being on Earth. These images are still used today in some Polynesian cultures in the context of spiritual practice. It is not uncommon for small tiki figures to be worn for protection from infertility in New Zealand.

In ancient Hawaiian culture, the gods, the aina, or land, and the kanaka, or people, shared a symbiotic existence. If the people took care of the land in a pono (right) manner, the gods were appeased. If the gods were happy, they would allow the land to provide sustenance for the people through verdant growth. Each god had many kinolau, or forms, including human and animal forms.

Tiki statues were carved to represent the image of a certain god and as an embodiment of that specific god's mana, or power. With well-formed tikis, perhaps the people could attain protection from harm, strengthen their power in times of war and be blessed with successful crops.

The primary Hawaiian gods represented with tiki images include:

Ku - the god of war
Lono - the god of agriculture and peace time
Kane - the god of creation, sunlight, forests, fresh water
Kanaloa - the god of the sea realm

The ancient Hawaiians kept their gods close using many creative forms of communication. Tikis were created as a medium of connection or interaction. Through continued communication with these all-powerful deities, the Hawaiian people were sure to follow the right path to appeasement. All Hawaiian people were said to have descended from the lineage of the gods. It was the job of the alii nui, or high chiefs, to make sure everything was in societal balance and that the ultimate respect was paid to the gods through many avenues.

The alii nui were considered direct descendents of the gods and thus carried great responsibility. In addition to tiki images, the higher spirits and ruling deities were paid homage through every action undertaken in ancient Hawaiian society. From the whalestooth pendants, feathered helmets and feathered cloaks worn by kings, to animal sacrifice and the religious practices that separated men and women during meal times, divine guidance ruled society.

The ancient system of religion called aikapu was abolished by King Kamehameha II in 1819, and the majority of temples and religious images, including tikis, were destroyed. However, some tiki artifacts remain to this day in remembrance of a time when strict religious beliefs guided the Hawaiian society. According to Hawaiian history, there was a time when gods walked the earth as men, and tiki images recognize not only their divinity, but also their human qualities as well. Tikis reminded the people just how close the realm of the gods was and reinforced their acknowledgement of the awesome power the gods sustained.

The first stone tikis were said to have been carved around the year 1400 in the Marquesas Islands. The tiki can take many crafted forms, from giant sculptures of the war God Ku, to images of variant gods carved into drums, boats, or other utilitarian objects, to petroglyphs carved into rock or tattoo patterns on the body. The artistic likenesses created in tikis demonstrate a high level of craftsmanship and perfectionism. The most recognized tiki character has a strong, stocky body with a rectangular head, seemingly wearing a headdress. This mysterious figure is to a degree an intimidating one, with large eyes and a stance that suggests he is ready for war.

Beginning in the 1930s, an entire "tiki culture" representing the island life of the South Pacific began to form around these odd statues. Tiki-themed restaurants displayed kitschy memorabilia, such as tiki carvings, tiki torches, rattan furniture, tropical-print fabrics and wooden or bamboo items. Tiki bars served mai tais and other fruity island drinks. Before long, tiki culture had a large following in the United States, using South Pacific themes in everything from clothing to interior design. After Hawaii became a state in 1959, tiki culture, the aloha shirt and other island representations were incredibly en vogue.

Today, you can find giant wooden figures in several spots around the Hawaiian Islands, including the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu's North Shore. At La Marianas on Sand Island in Honolulu, possibly the most popular tiki bar in Hawaii, visitors can enjoy a tropical cocktail amidst an overwhelming amount of tiki memorabilia. Visitors to Hawaii can find a tiki image pretty much anywhere, but when you are browsing through the tourist-aimed mass-manufactured tiki items, remember how these images once represented the beloved and revered Hawaiian gods.
