The What In Polynesian Pop game comes to its exciting conclusion, as diablo successfully identifies Item 7. That leaves only Item 4, which is a rather slippery fish, so I’m going ahead and revealing it. You can click each item below to see the answers.
The last two items, Item 4 and Item 7, are revealed after the jump:
Sticker from Kahala in Barcelona
Item 7 is a sticker from Kahala, in Barcelona, and was correctly identified by diablo. He actually said it was a Kahala menu, but the two look identical when cropped in like that, so it would have been impossible for him to know it was the sticker instead. I got this sticker as a gift from King Kukulele when I was at one of his Tiki Taix events last year. I have it stuck on my ukulele case, but it keeps falling off, I need to glue it down.
Maori Souvenir Tiki
Nobody guessed Item 4, which isn’t a surprise — I was kind of a stinker to include it, or at least to crop it so close. It’s a souvenir Maori tiki, carved by Ruihana, an artists’ collective in Rotorua, New Zealand. I picked it up at an antiques mall in Pasadena. The green item in his hand is a paddle, but I like to think it’s a lime, and he’s getting ready to mix up some Mai Tais. I think he’s absolutely gorgeous; despite his diminutive size (it’s only 9″ tall) and common provenance, it’s easily one of my very favorite tikis.
Thank you so much to everyone who took a guess at the items — I hope you had as much fun with it as I did.
