That's shapin' up fine, conga. By the way, I use Mozilla too. I also use Explorer, but when it acts up, Mozilla always comes through. (I'm on a Mac of course).

thanks Ben....once again the wood is taking me a little outside the tiki box....I keep thinking
of the incredible detail in your work and it inspires me to just keep picking away...I already
have two big garbage bags of wood chips from this guy...and a lotta work to do. I am confident
he'll squeeze into the polynesian "bag" once he's stained and photographs a little better.
Any similarity to AlienTiki's latest or to the big head guy from Outer Limits is strictly
coincidental.

Keep following the wood, it will be interesting to see where it takes you.

be...

Conga, your man is Looking Great! Starting to resemble the Rapanui Kava Kava man, way to go.

thanks for noticing Ben...he is patterned after the Moai Kava Kava...I always thought that was a
cool style...but as you can see my little feller is better fed

the raised strip along the back is going to be an exposed spinal column...here's another shot...
sorry for the decidedly non-tiki memorabilia in the background...exotic stuff in the tiki lounge...
Packers and Rock n roll stuff in the basement

mucho work to be done in clean-up carving...sanding...stain...etc....see ya' in a couple weeks...
having fun with the new tools.

Conga,

Looks like you hit that one out of the ball park. It is very similar to the pics you directed me to. Way to go. Were the legs difficult? I can't wait to see how you do the spine. He has a great profile and a really cool body pose/shoulder roll. I can't wait to see him in another few days.

-Gman

thanks Loki...Surfintiki...JP and GMan...your comments inspire me to push on...when you "make the
turn" on a carving doesn't it seem that you can't stay away...that whenever you have a spare 10
minutes you have to grab the chisels and keep digging! Really appreciate the comps cuz I questioned
how "well received" this guy would be....althought I had an ideal that Johnny P would dig him.
