Stolen tikis in UK

Pages: 1 3 replies


I recently moved to England and brought two large tiki log figures with me that I carved myself. They were nicked (stolen) from my house near Otley, Yorkshire in May, 2003.

One is about 3.5 feet tall and 15" or so in diameter, is a "head only" figure, is stained an orangish color with black trim, and has some wood rot on the back side. The other is a female "head and hands" tiki about 2 feet tall and 10" diameter, with some deep radial cracks in the wood, finished with a greyish stain.

If anyone in the UK spots these tikis, please let me know, I'd sure like to get them back if possible. If someone bought them at a car boot (flea market) please understand that they were stolen!

UK tiki aficianados, thanks for you help!

Death to the nickers!

Oops, scratch that... I mean, death to the robbers! (Sorry to hear of the theft, seriously. Hope they are found soon!

Sounds like a case for the MI-5 or possibly MI-6 if it crossed foriegn waters. Sorry about your tiki. I hope our British tikiphiles pull through and find it.
