Description

This listing is for a PRINT ON CANVAS of my painting "Portrait of a Khan Man".

Dimensions: 16"x 20"

1" thick canvas, with wrapped images of the painting going around the outside edges.

The original painting was done in acrylics, by me, the artist RARABIRD.

My signature is found at the bottom right corner, woven into the reeds of the hat on the floor.

The theme of this painting is about a man who is supposed to give your your fantasy, everything you want, for $60,000...but he really gives you what HE wants. Therefore, he is sort of a Con-man.

Details: Mr. Roarke (played by actor Ricardo Montalbán) is wearing the same necklace that Montalbán's character, Khan, played in The Star Trek movie "The Wrath of Khan". The title of this painting is a pun, a play on words, combining his two characters in these famous TV show and films.

He is also wearing a Hawaiian shirt under his famous white suit, the same Hawaiian shirt that Elvis wears in the movie "Blue Hawaii". A nod to the album cover where Elvis is wearing that shirt is represented also by the ukulele laying beside Mr. Rourke's peacock chair. Another play on words, the ukulele is tattooed, Mr. Rourke's sidekick is called "Tattoo".

Mr. Roarke's sidekick, Tattoo, has been turned into a table, with a sculpture of the character as a tiki, holding his very favorite thing in the world: de plane! On top of the table is a tropical plant (a bromeliad) and a pineapple vase, next to a ship in a bottle. The ship represents "The Love Boat", the TV show that came on after "Fantasy Island" on regularly scheduled programming in the 1970's.

The framed painting of the waterfall in the background is a portrait of the actual waterfall from the opening scene of the television show.

The planter hanging above Mr. Roarke's head is a replica of the singing orchid boat from Walt Disney's Enchanted Tikiroom. The Anthurium flowers hanging above him are represented because Mr. Roarke always had Anthuriums in his office on Fantasy Island.

He holds a "Tiki Bob" mug, in the shape of a hurricane glass because he always had a Hurricane glass drink in his hand when his guests arrived on the island. He also holds a fishbowl with a pufferfish in it. The fish is not puffed because it is not frightened and it is not angry, it is happy and smiling.

In fact, everyone/everything is smiling in this portrait, including the electrical outlet, because Mr. Roarke's most famous quote is when he always said "Smiles, Everyone" when all of his guests arrived at Fantasy Island.



Custom paintings can also be requested. Please contact me, RARABIRD, the artist and Esty seller, with your ideas for a commissioned piece. I mainly work in Tiki, Fantasy, Mermaid, Nautical, Exotic and Tropical themes.

International shipping can be calculated per destination.

All canvas prints are printed ON DEMAND. It takes one week to process: place the order at the printer, get printed, varnished, stretched on a wooden frame, hardware attached to the back for hanging, and packaging the print for shipping. Shipping and handling may take up to one week. Expect TWO WEEKS from the date of placing your order to receiving your print.

Please see my other pages for other pieces painted by me.
