Creole tiki

For reasons that make no sense to me, the main entrance of the old Tulane Medical School is studded with tiki heads.  Its a rather somber art deco building without much ornament except for these.  They are about eight inches tall.

Just another example of the odd bits of eye candy that litter this cityscape.  It's the same building that is home to this around the corner.  Who knows what the architect was thinking.  Perhaps he was drawing up his plans over Sazeracs at the Roosevelt Hotel a few blocks away.
