Tiki G...your foam tiki is great...looks just like wood from my vantage point up here in
Wisconsin. I agree that we need to see more of your work...always great attention to detail.

Thanks everybody. It's been kind of an experimental type thing. I'll try to do a progress post on one like Ben suggested, with pics.

Awesome post Gary. We had the great fortune to see this in person @ McTiki's before it was transferred to Benz.

We were wondering where it ended up.

Awesome artwork !!!

Love the character of that foam tiki and Duality is INCREDIBLE! How long did you spend on him? I like the mix of your style and traditional.. All in one!

Gary, this was an Incredible piece and you don't know how lucky Hukilau was to get it as it Almost didn't make the trip. I Almost Shanghi'd it and kept it for myself. It was nice to have it in my home for at least a little while. We Loved it.

Gary, this is another spectacular piece from you. You pulled all stops on this one for Hukilau. This guy definately shows where carving has been, and is going. It looks well thought out, and executed (with a LOT of sweat I'm sure!).
I missed Hukilau too, so let's focus on next years!
Aloha!

Sick stuff as usual Gary. Upping the bar again.

Would have loved one of the foam logs too but that would have been the straw that broke the Town & Country.

As it was we limped home with the load we carried.

Bananas are potted and are doing well in the spare room... much Mahalos!

You guys were the greatest hosts ever... thanks so much!

Got in today... 4/3 wetsuit, 5 mil gloves, 7 mil boots. Sure do miss the ocean.

Local newspaper got a photo of me in front of a freighter today... I'll scan it for you tomorrow when the paper comes out.

Keep up the great work!

Gary, that piece is astounding... amazing! Obviously a tremendous amount of thought and artistic effort went into it. It's got "G" style written all over it, but it's also quite different at the same time. Zero log, 100% tiki! I could go on, but I won't... You and Trish should be incredibly happy with what you've achieved with this piece of art. Now I'm gonna go back & look at it some more.

Aaron

I love the Melanesian Papua New Guinea influenced art on one side and Polynesian Marquesan tiki on the other side! Sweet!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to everyone for the comments. We worked on this piece for quite a while while in the middle of other things. Seemed like it took forever to finish. Kinda kept it under wraps till Hukilau. Decided not to share till after Hukilau was said and done.

Mctiki: Yep, you got the up close and personal view didn't you! Thanks man.

Capt'n Skully: Thanks alot. I spent more time on this piece than any other I have carved. Hard to put a time amount on it. It was a little here, little there kinda carve.

Benzart: Thank you for letting him hang out in your pad for a spell. We know he was in good company. Hope it didn't give Mrs. Sherry too many nightmares! Thanks for everything.

Surfintiki: Yeah it does kinda have that look I guess you could say! Not sure this is where tiki is going, but with what's in my head, there is no telling. Everything evolves eventually. Thanks.

JohhnyP: Is this what you were looking for???? You got it. Ying & Yang. Thanks alot.

Lake Surfer: Thanks. Glad you guys made it back safe. Bananas and all! Cool pic in the newspaper. Was that wave made by the ship! Looks too cold for me.

FreddieBallsomic: It did not make the auction at Hukilau. Word is, is that the auction never went off, so it is suppose to be placed in another online Hukilau auction of sort sort soon, according to Tiki Kiliki. That's about all I know at this point. Thanks alot for your comments.

Aaron: Thanks, I always appreciate hearing from you. Not many people spend as much time to detail as you do. I love your work as well. Keep up the good work yourself.

Congatiki: Thanks again.

Davez_tikiz: Thanks to you as well!

Sneakytiki: Glad you like it. It's different, that's for sure.
