Conga, he/they is/are looking VEry nie. This carving is not an easy one. I think you will find the PNG pieces are much more difficult than they look. Those old carvers are very adept at taking very human features and stretching and twisting them all out of perportion and making it look Sooo eaassy and simpole. You seem to have no trouble with it.Nice.

Excellent! I'm really excited about how this one is turning out. All those through cuts are hard.

Conga,

That's quite an undertaking. How did you see them in there?

Awesome work!

thanks again Benz and JP..always appreciate your comps
Mahalo to GMan...you are (sometimes) a man of few words...but I always look forward to hearing from
you....
And thanks Hewey and McTiki...it's fun to get a big ole hunk of wood and start digging...I
don't sketch anything into the wood so it's pretty much flying by the seat of my pants after
getting the initial inspiration. The downside is some irregularity in design...but there are
plenty of irregularities in my own physical design too. The primary inspiration comes in the
realization that my friends are gonna be checking in...
see ya soon...gotta go back to work.

I like how the wood has some bark at the bottom. Its almost like the wood gradually goes deeper in.

Conga,

We're all watching - and expecting this one to get sicker and sicker every day. By the time you break out the hook knife this bad boy is gonna be attracting news media! Anderson Cooper is gonna be camping out in your front yard! I love your stuff!!!

Thanks everyone...and Keigs...it's a real honor to have you stop by. Itseems like I'm perched
on the ledge of a building...and all you guys are watching and yelling "jump jump jump." But
instead you're yelling "dig dig dig." I appreciate the encouragement.....Get Anderson Cooper
over here.

Very Nice! I have been thinking about trying a PNG piece, but just really don't know where to start. Are you going to just stain this one or paint it like so much all of the stuff from the Sepik Valley is?
