The big tiki man.

[Rich Frejomil, 08/27/2016]

Named "Ronjo," he stands about as far away from Polynesia as it's possible to be in America. Built in the early 1960s, he used to be painted red-and-white; now he's copper-colored. The ground between his legs has been worn bare by the feet of countless snapshot-posing tourists.
