Witco Wood Carved Siamese “Meathead” Tiki Cat Sculpture

Out of stock


Impressive Witco carved cedar Siamese cat Tiki sculpture. This wood carved animal was possibly the inspiration behind the character “Meathead” in the film Meatballs 2. There are a few models of Witco cats out there… this is perhaps the most graceful design. The form of the Siamese cat is beautifully captured with the elongated neck, body and tail. The heart-shaped head perfectly expresses the Siamese form. This particular model stands in at nearly four feet tall!

You may have seen this Witco cat elsewhere, but it’s almost always missing its eyes. Vintage 1960s, carved from solid cypress wood. If you’re into Tiki, then you probably know Witco. Collector’s adore Witco for it’s wild design. The company went full-force in capturing the zeitgeist of exotica in the 1960s. Polynesian, Asian, and tropical culture and aesthetics began to make their way into American homes. Elvis movies and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” introduced America to tiki, Mai Tais and Luas. It’s still tiki time in the hearts of Witco collectors. This larger than life cat is the perfect mascot for your island lounge.
