You're always stepping it up Conga, way to go. BTW, I think you have a beautiful yard.

Hi Johnny and GMan and Finkdaddy....appreciate the remarks on this guy...he's coming
along very nicely and I'll post other pics this weekend.....
GMan....I don't mean to turn this into a history lesson...cuz I am by no means a student
of PNG carvings...but....
search out mindimbit village and you'll find a number of sites with examples of carvings
from this area of New Guinea...generally a lot of bird-animal heads with more human looking
bodies....and a bit of color...some really nice things available at Magellan Traders
website....From what I have been able to find out...Mindimbit is a "nice" village...well
kept...with a thriving market in carvings of ancestral figures and animals. Also check
out

Conga,

That is crazy looking, I don't know what to say. It looks like a whole lotta work, with stuff going on everywhere. A very challenging project for sure. A very cool project indeed. I really like the tripod/tail post. Very smart. Is this guy gonna be chocolate too?

You did do a lot of work on this one. I enjoy your style, you push the limits and yet stay true to the source.

Mahalo Ben...GMan...Finky...Exotica...and Johnny P....your continued support keeps me pushing on.
I was gonna quit this guy yesterday but a friend convinced me to keep going and strive for a more
polished....as opposed to rough-primitive look. Six hours later he's starting to smooth out a
bit....
GMan...not gonna dip this one in chocolate...thinking of a light to medium stain...then a little
paint splashed around in strategic places...and Exotica...thanks much...my next one will be a
wall carving for your bar...
thanks again everyone!

Aloha Conga Brah!
Great work on the New Guinea tiki! I love that style carving with the bird spirit and all...I love how it looked from the side with the "tail" holding it position. I have to say, looks pretty chilly up there brah! makes me cold just looking at it! So, cant wait to see it finished with the stain and paint...

Keep up the good work and watch out for frostbite!

Malama Pono!
