I thought that subject line might get your attention. Following a lead on an earlier post by Thejab, I tracked down my own copy of the December 1960 "Modern Man" magazine. Here is the glamour photo of a nude woman with what appears to be an Andres Bumatay tiki. I've done a little censoring myself, so that Hanford won't have to do it later.

Good lord, if we can't show nipples at TikiCentral, what is this world coming to???

That's a different way of looking at things.

Y'know, I'm still aspiring to that "Pagan" pose in yoga class.

And I agree with Tikifish. Although I'm sure Sabu was only trying to be courteous, I believe breasts are a glorious attribute to be admired. The art world would not be the same without them.

I agree - repost Sabu!

Wowie, Swanky! That's one to remember, incredible, reserve that for me, please.

And the Andres Bumatay Tiki is a beaute, too.
Should have had a black bar in front of those suggestive eyes also, tisk tisk.
Anybody remember that in the 90's Trader Vic's covered up the breasts on their classic menus!

I love this Bumatay style of the "Wedge Tiki", his most prolific design. Tiki carvers, take note:

If you look at it closely, you can see the technique: He took a very thick palm tree trunk, and, looking at it from the top, divided it in four slices, like a cake.

That's why the back of the Tiki has that rough palm bark . The pointed edge of the triangular slice ends up as the nose, that's why the feet point together. The whole Tiki is more or less a two sided carving made to look round.

This style was also (much later) the inspiration for the "Divorce Tiki" in "Honey, we shrunk ourselves". Somebody at Disney must have had an old Bumatay Tiki...

Why it's Vintage Girl and Cherry Capri doing their 1960s girls with tiki picture.
Sorry you can't see much of the tiki!

I am really starting to like a tiki's point of view.
And as Fishlips and shaker hips always say,
"whats wrong with showing a little nipple on TC anyway?" I demand you turn her around at once, and that's 180 not 360.

I just love to type nipple nipple nipple nipple nipple nippple nipppple
got to go now

Bax,

Do you come up with those ditty's at work, while your in meeting with your clients? Wow, I usually onle get the' Looney Tunes' theme...

Hubba Hubba! Down boy! Woof!
Oh, it's a painting......anyone know the artist?

Trader Woody

Wow! Those would be a great pair to get your hands on!....oh, the masks would be great too.

SugarCaddyDaddy

Ok, ok,

Since everybody seems to want to see it, I'll post the original picture with no censor-bar. The cries of "Nipples, Nipples, Nipples!" have been deafening, (at least from Baxdog). And Vintage-Girl's arguments have been, um, ...persuasive.

So here's the photo in all its original 1960 glory:

EGADS!! Well, That's Not Pretty. I certainly wasn't expecting That.

Sabu

Feel free to post a link to the un-censored picture. Or hell, just post the picture right in the thread and change the topic title to read "Warning: Nudity".

All I ask is that you give readers fair warning.

I could have gone my hwole life without seeing that and I would have been fine.

T

Warning! Nudity in the following picture!

Here's a nice picture from another Modern Man magazine. You may remember it from a recent Dionysus Records ad.

It seems Shutterfly cropped the tiki on the left off. Oh well, there's a tiki next to her!

Better question: Does anyone know the model?!!!

Shutterfly crops a fair amount out of your image - so when scanning it, leave about 1/2 " around the edge...

Weird. That girl looks like she has implants. Man magazine is of the pre-implant age I thought. If so, she has the fakest looking real ones I have ever seen. This is what all those girls are trying to achieve!

Breast implants have been around for much longer than you think. Rumor has it that Marilyn had sponge-type implants. Look at early Marilyn and It'll make you wonder too.

Ok, To make up for the Sven-nipple photo, here are a couple more nice/naughty tiki pics:

(PS: TheJab - Do know what issue of Modern Man your photos come from? I'd like to find a copy for myself. Sabu)

Hey those are from Octavio and from David Perry. I've been trying to get Octavio to start coming to a couple of the TC events for awhhile but he's a little flaky. He's hella cool but just kind of a weird guy. Not to long a go he went off to Thailand to kickbox for a few months. Like I said hella cool though, the pic I used on the flier for the Blue Hawaiians, APE show at Kozmos was one of his. He was telling me he convinced the people at Cello Studios where he works to completely decorate a new section of the studio in tiki style. I think they hit up Oceanic Arts for all the stuff.

S

Yeah, we tried to get Winky Tiki to work with us on Hukilau 2002. I can't recall what came of it. He was interested. I think we just had too many things already in the fire.
Winky TIki

And you should've seen the audience...

French band whose name I can never remember at Wild Weekend 2.

Hey suicide sam...
Ya Octovio is a cool guy hes always has alot
on his plate ..we are acually really good friends and he just finished recording my band "The Mysterious Keytones" at Cello as a
matter fact the Tiki in the pictures was carved by my Guitarist Machine gun Kelly but all in all Octovio is very cool and he probly just was working his ass off as usual... Cool Pix
Witch Picture did you use for the Blue Hawaiians flier?

I have several reactions to several pix:

Vintagegirl, why does this never happen when I am at home?
I had gotten this, the biggest Tiki in the neighbourhood, because someone told me "Erect it, and they will come!"
Well, I am still sitting here at my desk, looking out at the front lawn, waiting...
Or did they mean it in some other way???

Trader Woody, is this a contemporary,"retro" painting/artwork?

Sabu, there is something wrong with that re-posted photo: If I would find myself in that position, I would never make the face on the right, but smile rather contently.

The Octavio pix are cool, but someone get that guy a better Tiki.

Here's a great one from an old Playboy magazine.

This was the flyer for that show. This is actually one of teh giurls that I think he did his better tiki shoots with, well obviously I dug the ones with Persephone too.

http://www.tufftimes.com/images/flyers/19th.jpg

BigBro,

Yep, it's a contemporary painting. Frustratingly, I happened upon the website a good while ago and can't find it again. I recall that the artist set up the scenes, photographed them, then attempted to paint the result as closely to a photograph as he could. There were others in a similar vein, but without Tikis.

Highly impressive stuff, but by whom?

Trader Woody

Sven and everyone else! Did you see the similarities in the photo that Swanky posted and the photo I posted?

It's the same tiki in both pictures and it looks like the same floor! Both of these were quite possibly the product of the same shoot! I can't believe we just discovered it.

You be the judge.

Interesting.

Almost Scary!!! It would be interesting to find out who the photographer was and whether or not he did a whole slew of similar shoots (much like Octavio has).
I guess we must keep in mind that Basement Tiki Bars, in the 50s and 60s, were the domain of the Man of the House. I don't suppose many housewives were encouraged to set up their own (or even to collaborate in the hobby save from drinking a bit and cleaning a lot).
Has anyone else noticed that we have recently lost another vestige of that wonderful era? They recently changed the shape of the Michelob bottle! It had been designed, in the 50s, to resemble the female figure. Now it just looks like, well... A Beer Bottle.
Seems we lose a bit more each and every day.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is one of the most entertaining threads I've read on this forum.I can feel the recriminations coming, but a little prurience is essential to maintain one's sanity.
Given the ominous events that I see coming-I think we all should take a moment to reflect on the beautiful, pleasant things in life.
When it comes to beauty-Hawaii and the female form top my list. In that order.

Anyone know the month and year that this pic appeared in Playboy?

Also, I seem to remember a 50's or 60's Playboy that has some pics of gals frolicking in a pool with some Witco stuff (masks if I recall) in the background - anyone know the month and year of the pic?

Tikibars,

I think you're refering to the picture of Hugh's pool and babes that's in the BOT.

James, check the Book of Tiki, page 43. Ken (keigs20) has reproduced one of those masks that you see behind Hugh Hefner & the Bunnies.

I think you'd be barking up the wrong tree if you decide to wade through old Playboys looking for this set (Though there are undoubtably worse ways to fill your spare hours). I'm pretty sure that this pic comes from some cheesy 60's nylon/stag mag, though it's highly probable that the same photos appeared in a variety of mags.

James, check the Book of Tiki, page 43.

I seem to recall seeing another picture, apparently from this same photo shoot, in which one of the ladies was pictured leaping into the pool. My guess is that the BOT picture, and the other one I remember seeing, were printed in Playboy at some point...?

Does this ring a bell, or am I hallucinating again?
Too many Navy Gorgs last night...

I recently caught this pic on eBay, so it struck me as a decent enough time to resurrect this enjoyable old thread...
