Dedicating his life to his passion of carving, Taani Tasini Lavaka’s dream of opening his own gallery has come to fruition. Tasini Tiki Gallery showcases Taani’s unique large scale hand sculpted wood carvings as well as smaller, easier to carry pieces and decorative items carved from bone. Some of his immense wood sculptures take over 1,000 hours to complete! Born and raised in Tonga, traditional carving with wood and bone is an important part of his culture. He started carving at age six, helping his father and grandfather carve functional pieces like canoes for fishing and tools for farming and hunting. He sold his first carving when his was fifteen years old and now at 64, has passed down the traditional art to his own sons. Taani’s art has been collected by dignitaries and celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, President George Bush Senior, and Michael Jordan. Worldwide shipping available. The Shops at Wailea.
“…there’s no comparison to the response I’ve received from my ads in Best Guidebook and the Dining Magazines. Nothing has been more successful in continuing to produce art sales and increasing name recognition. I can honestly say that my business is thriving because of these publications.”

As a top producing real estate professional based in West Maui, I help people in a variety of ways beyond selling and buying real estate. On a daily basis, I refer to the Lahaina Dining Art & Shopping publication when directing visitors to the finest West Maui restaurants and retailers. It is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my work because I “give back” to the West Maui business community by sharing my favorite West Maui attractions to the world… all from one publication!
As a business operator, it is essential that every advertising dollar you spend is spent well, and Lahaina Dining is definitely our market niche. Building trust is an integral part of any successful business relationship, and Mikel is friendly, caring and passionate about his work.
