Description

This 3-foot Witco cat wood carved animal was possibly the inspiration behind the character “Meathead” in the film Meatballs 2.

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.
