Very nice, Conga. I like tikis that look more animal than human - sort of off the beaten path, and otherworldly (is that a word??). Nice! See you in Tennessee.

I will have to go back to see what wood that is but its a different type of wood considering that there is no wood grain. The finish, yeah, you got to do it your way.

thanks everyone....TeaKey....it's basswood....there is a grain but it's pretty faint....
it's hard to see in the pics...but it has a nice grain that circles the shoulders and
belly...and the nose and hips have some nice light markings....appreciate the kind
remarks from all of you.

So I lied about setting the chisels aside till after CoonTiki. There have been so many great posts
from you guys that I had to go back to work...just to feel moderately worthwhile. This is the
Congatiki "Savage"...which will hopefully look sorta like the left side figure in the "Ritual of
the Savage" album cover (Les Baxter)


and a group shot with his friends

Thanks for peeking...bring on the sugar!

Wow Conga, your collection is looking great. Have you ever tried sneaking a tape recorder in that room when you go to sleep? I bet there's some real interesting conversation going on there!

Looks like you had a fun weekend. No snow here, but it wasn't overly warm. "Savage" is going to round out your collection well, that carving looks clean.

Conga my friend, watching your thread just amazes me at how your carving just keep getting better and better. You should be pretty darn proud of yourself. a musician, a painter, a carver, and the tiki gods only know what else. Way to go!

thanks a lot Johnny....much nicer working outside when the temp starts to climb...
and Exotica...thanks ...you know what they say about "Jack of all trades...master of none."
But I'm gonna keep on working at it...especially the carving. I am gonna try to sponge up everything
that's presented at CoonTiki...and try to get better better better. This is the finished
"Savage"


he towers in at a modest 30 inches....next on the agenda..Coontiki...and BIG wood.
Thanks again.

Yeah man, truck it down to TN. We really need more tiki decor in the cabin. Right now it's pretty sparse and there are a few black bears here and there. Bring it on!
