Conga,

Only you could have pulled this one off. It's perfect, absolutely perfect. The exposed backbones put an exclamation point on the job. That finish is over the top as is the rest of him! Congratulations on producing a truly great carving.

-Gman

The kava kava man is what they made out of wood then they stopped making the Stone Moai. They were hungry and warring people at this time and the Kava man reflects his maker.

thanks Palama and Loki...and Teakey for the historical info....yea Loki...I wasn't really sure
about what color to go with....but I am pleased with the red mahogany with a gloss finish...when
I first used a satin stain it looked rather....well....poopy....the gloss brought back some of
the deep chocolate color. thanks for looking.

Maybe while you're looking for carving ideas you can create one of those great Congtiki paintings! I really miss them.

Good luck with that new project, I'll keep checking on your thread here. On a side note, the Northwoods rock, I like it there, I've been on vacation there a few times (like Minocqua, Eagle River, St. Germain), cool.
