I have been working on an area in my basement for about three years now. I keep trying to add layers upon layers of things to feast your eyes on. I have some matting not put up yet and my stock of bamboo is getting pretty good. I call my space the "Aku Tiki Room" in a nod to the only tiki bar/lounge ever here in Lincoln. I know it's not a very creative name but it's tribute to the past and I like it.

Aku Tiki Room
Friday, the postman delivered some new tiki art to the West A house. I had Robert make this piece for me, with some of my favorite elements of the tiki style. Gruesome carved tiki idol, fish float lamps lit by a huge moon, a sliver of light emanating from a distant A Frame thatched hut. You can almost here the waves crashing the cliffs below. Perfect!
