- Figureheads -

Inspired by historic pieces or just good design, our hand carved figureheads, animal carvings and tables are high quality, high density wood. 
We also carry various hand carved wood tiki totems.
*Please note these are custom made by hand for our shop and orders come to us about 12 months apart. 


If an item is available, it will read "available" under the photo; otherwise it has been sold.  Sold items remain pictured to show the variety and styles of pieces we have carried in the past and, depending on availability, may carry again.

Always check the homepage for new arrivals and call or email for pricing.

AND please note that each of these is hand carved, so each shipment brings new styles and changes in features depending on the artisan carving them...
