Creepy Coconut Thing

My husband and his brothers are trying to get rid of and sale things out of their fathers estate. There all kinds of vintage stuff still lingering around in the garage there. From Ice cream memorabilia and tools to this!

 

It's a hand carved coconut head! It's old and it's ugly. It creeps me out. I've seen these in places I've visited and I will go way out of line to get as far as I can from them. I absolutely dislike them. 

When I saw this one, I sat for a while just staring at it.....nope, cant do it. Hes gotta go. I do not want it. 
I bet someone has a tiki bar somewhere that this might look good hanging around but not me.

 

I'm not sure if there is a folk lure behind these carved nuts or not. If anyone knows, feel free to tell.
This thing is so old, it could be from Gilligan's Island. Who knows. 

I try to help out selling some of the little things, so If you want it, its's in my Etsy shop

Somebody please get this ugly, creepy thing away.

  4. I have seen some C-nut carvings that are comfortable to look at, but most are weird and you point out. Just a few weeks ago we visited Melbourne, FL. At one corner a man was set up selling these heads. Evidently it is a tourist thing. LOL
    My sister says she doesn't want anyone going thru her stuff after death so she is cleaning out. But I think it is just talk. LOL

    Estates can be informative, surprising or down right embarrassing.
