Tikis in the Marquesas

During our time in French Polynesia we found tikis old, new and even underwater.  Some had been moved to sites in towns and some were in their original places around historic sites.  Others were modern works.  The above is a modern piece probably from the 1980's (much more intricate than the original works).  Modern sculptors have the advantage of modern tools.

Above two are modern works.
