Just going off your photos, and particularly the last one, that 'white stain' on the bark looks to me like the normal light gray oxidation of natural palm bark, from when it was still a tree exposed to sun and rain. The browner parts on the bark look like places that the tiki has been bumped or scraped in its lifetime.
Regardless, Will has good advice on refreshing it.
