I really like this guy, your birdman carvings reminded me of something I saw here many years ago and it took me a while to sort through a lot of old threads to find.

Hey thanks everybody, and thanks Johnny for posting that pic.
I just got nuts for that PNG stuff and that one is really cool,
a heck of a lot cooler than what I'm doing. Mine is not going to
have any additional digging or detail in the body cuz I want it to
have sort of a flowing modern feel to it, but I am having a lot of
fun working on the head and beak.
Thanks again guys.

I know all you So-Florida peeps had a great weekend. Since it's a long
way from Northern Wisconsin I had to finish-up the latest birdman. The
concept here was a PNG style figure blended with tiki modern sensibilities.
Does that make any sense?



Birdman was fun, now moving on to BIG STUFF.

Many many thanks kind friends, the birdman appreciates the comps.
Thanks for peeking into Conga's thread Tikimecula, Kinny, and Mr. & Mrs.
BPHoptiki. Mooney, the weather is getting better, just needs to warm up
a little.
And Benzo, the master-host and master-carver, was that a big ole' chunk of
basswood you were attacking at your weekend "Chop?" Looks like there was
some "nonsense" going on down there too

Conga! Those 3 pieces side by side, really show your style. Love them all. The head hunter, I really like, especially that smooth tone you got out of the stain...it looks classic.

Conga you definitely achieved the delicate balance between primitive and modern with this piece. The deft details and paint touches really make it pop.

Well done!!
