Tiki Masks vs. Tiki Wall Plagues
The newest and hottest items to hit the tiki market are tiki masks and tiki wall plaques....but how do you know which one is the right design choice for you? Well, Tikimaster.com is about to help you find this answer! First, let's start by differentiating the two...
Tiki masks and tiki wall plaques are both made out of wood and are both hand carved. The carvers pay close attention to the small details that create the overall character of the tiki. Vivid paint colors are sometimes added to provoke an even stronger feeling for the God they represent. There can be subtle differences in each tiki mask or tiki plaque just by an angle of a carving, or a tooth in the mouth. These differences should be viewed as uniqueness, as this makes each piece a one of a kind!
The major difference between a tiki mask and a tiki wall plaque is that tiki masks are round from the natural shape of a tree trunk and usually have eyes and mouths that are carved all the way through, so that they are open. This can make hanging your tiki mask a bit of a challenge, but don't worry, at Tikimaster.com, we have provided the perfect mounting on the back of each tiki mask. They range in size from 8 inches to 40 inches (that's 3 1/3 feet). The price points of tiki masks range from $9.90 - $229.
Tiki wall plaques are carved from flat pieces of wood. The wood is first cut in strips to follow the natural grain of the wood. Tiki wall plaques generally don't have carved out eyes and mouths, although you will find several varieties at tikimaster.com that do. Tiki wall plaques are priced between $9.90 -$49.90. These prices are only guaranteed at tikimaster.com.
So, here's the bottom line....which one do you like better? The tiki mask or the tiki wall plaque? It's really comes down to preference, size and price point.
range from 8 inches to 24 inches.
