The thing about Conga is that not only does his work kick ass, but he lets it speak for itself! A humble and accomplished carver he is.
Three cheers for Conga
Huzzah!
Huzzah!
Huzzah!

Another great piece, Conga, can't wait to see how it turns out!

Good stuff Conga... working wonders up Nort 'dere.

You're doing the largest piece in Wisconsin right now and the challenge has been thrown down...

I'll see your 8 feet and raise you 10... as soon as I secure the log!

Man... keep up the incredible work!

thanks fer the kind words Tikisobayli...Sam...Kapu...and Lakesurfer...I am thinking of using
some color on the top carving...not sure where or what....Kapu...one better be humble in these
surroundings...big heads don't last long when you see the incredible work that is being posted...
always better and better....and Lake...the biggest carving in progress in Wisconsin has it's
own built-in drawbacks...like probably never getting done.

update shot on the PNG figure

The last five hours have gone into the face and hollowing out the headdress...let's see...how
long till winter up here...am I gonna run out of time?

Conga,

Yes sir, you are walking with the ancients now. Every little tweak you do to this sucka is gonna set it off even more. I can't wait to see you start all the small work. So far, it is fantastic. We'll all probably be floored when you finally finish. Keep going!

-Gman

Beautiful work Conga. This does confirm I suck and later tonight will burn all my tools as a offering to gods.

Way to raise the bar up...........way up.

Stop Rodeo....DON'T DO IT....there's no bar that you can't reach. Sacrifice your tools into
more wood...you're doing just fine. All of us...the two tikis...the bird...and yours truly...
appreciate the compliment.

Go Conga!! Go Conga!!

Hey bro a box is headed your way this week Mahalo for your patience. I've really had my hands full... Cleaners Painters, Carpet layers, Neon guys, and the phone ringing off da hook with people wanting to ship orders they've been holding for months! (check out link to Zappa's song about California's contractors and mechanics) Whew! Re energized at Oasis. Wish you'd been there we could have drummed up a storm! Next year EVERYBODY brings a drum and we'll have a shindig on the beach!

Conga, the detail on this guy is really Excellent. There is sharp detail everywhere you look. You must be going Crazy trying to clean up all those corners and different angles and figures. Just hang in there and keep it tight.

thanks Ben...just the encouragement I need. Spent a couple of hours last night working on the
last six toes....such a good time...I love the hook knife! Thought about your toes (well not
YOUR toes) the whole while....will try to add a LOT of Benzart-Basement style detail to this
one...all over the face....the entire staff and headdress....oh boy. Thanks for noticing
Ben....charged up and happy!
