My name is***** from Sydney Australia.l have a Tiki which l received from my Grandmother who was given it from her best friend who was A New Zealander. She dug it up from her garden when she was a child.l am wondering what to do next Thank you

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It is vertical one not leaning to the side and is dark green.lts head is very slightly leaning to the side.it has a hole in its head l would imagine to put a threading through. it has l think a crack through its leg.
