Missing the sunset! Big mistake!
Fortunately, the rest is very beautiful...

Hello Ben, Amy, Laojia.
Tangata Manu is taking shape....The bird-dog approves of your
messages...and I AM gonna get a sunset picture for you, Laojia
I have been pondering the Rapa Nui birdman figures for a loooooong
time, still need to alter some of the bumps and angles, but I'm happy
so far.


Should be knifing in some of the details in the coming week, stay tuned.

No real feathers?! Dang. Well, he looks GREAT. A true conga masterpiece - this dude is cool. Can we see the back? I like the cool, aged look you gave him along the edges.

Many many thanks "The Big T." Sorry I couldn't do anything with
feathers for you
I WAS gonna show a backside view but spaced it...here are a couple
shots...obviously based on the Easter Island birdman figures...
hope you still like it!


I don't want to make anyone jealous...but can you see that we have
snow already!

Thanks Surfintiki, glad you like the ole bird. Tried a Kava Kava
about five years ago, but made a lot of conceptual mistakes. I think
periodically about a re-do to correct some things. TikiRay recently
did a fabulous Kava so I'm putting another Kava on the back burner for
now, but I really love that style.
I also love the recent work on your own thread...
Nothing in the works on my bench right now...seeking inspiration

Ha, look at that! Wow. Hey, that's really cool! Sheesh, this *is* a masterpiece! Now that's some excellent work.

As for snow... Man, you poor guys who live in the tundra! In Houston today, the low is 76, the high is 90. Humidity is 94%. And a 30% chance of rain. ok, so it's slightly on the humid side....

Hey, many many thanks Benz, Big T, Mango and Clarita. You're
making me feel like I did okay on this one
I thought about this style for a long time before I tackled it. Always
appreciate your kinds remarks, especially since it's not really mainstream
"tiki."
Clarita...little Petri packs a tough bite for a little pooch...just look at
those evil fangs! I mess with her once in a while...but I always "Beware
The Dog."

Conga my friend!

The Birdman is beautiful!

You are the Northwoods master of the PNG!

Hope you are warming a bit with the southerly winds... no snow down here in Beer City except for some flurries last weekend.
I hope it stays away, I have a 9 foot commission to do and it won't fit through the back door.

Keep up the great work, someday our paths will cross!
