The search for the Tiki Heads in Overland Park, Kansas took several hours spread over a few months. The first location for Todd Baker;s Tiki Heads that I found online, proved to be wrong, as was the second.
But I found the single Tiki Head that is shown at the bottom of this page, near the second location. The owner of that home said that Todd Baker, who carves the Easter Island style head had formerly lived nearby, but had moved a few blocks farther east, on 79th Street just west of old downtown Overland Park.
Todd Baker's front yard has seven 3 - 8 feet tall Tiki heads, which he has carved out of stumps with a chain saw. When I visited the home, there was another stump awaiting sculpture, in the back yard.
This is a private residence, so please just view these sculptures from the street. You may also enjoy the first one that I found, a few block west at the corner of Antioch and 81st Street.
