What is Tiki?
Tiki was a huge, popular art movement (I'm trying hard not to say a kitsch art movement but it's the truth) in the United States during the mid 1950s to the early 1960s. It was (very) loosely based on Polynesian art and culture. Tiki bars and Tiki clubs were all the rage across the U.S. in the form of furniture, clothing and household items...probably the most iconic Tiki image is that of a Tiki god...a totem pole travels to Easter Island sort of thing.
