Scarf for the giant tiki head.

25-Ton Tiki Head

With the tremendous cold spell, we have had some compassion. Tucsonans decided that our Magic Carpet Tiki needed a hand-knitted scarf to keep it warm. Thought you would like to see how Tiki's get warm when it is 19 degrees. It was done, we believe, as part of a renegade art installation. It is a peaceful movement to place positive projects around the nation.
