Thanks, Freddieballs, Pdrake, Hiltiki, Benz & Surf.

Maori pieces are both a challenge & fun to carve, so busy and full of detail, they really put your skills to the test. I just hope I do them justice.

very inspiring work Tikimecula. I never get bored checking the threads in "carving"
and it's because great stuff is popping up on a regular basis. Excellent.

You can be realy proud of your work. WOW! But what I talking about, look only on these pictures and note
how clean and chary Tikimecula cultivate his tools. He works with the same wariness on his art works.
Thanks for the picures!

Superb craftmanship.
The kind of stuff that you'd see in a very polished vintage tiki bar or in a museum.
Especially these recent pieces.

T-mec, what everyone else said. You patience is amazing. Lots of dedication to do detail work like that. And it shows. Beautiful gallery quality pieces.

I've got a ton of pictures and research on the Cook Islands staff gods... been wanting to carve some for my bar, but have to wait until vending season is over.

Hope they turn out half as good as yours.

Verry Nice. I bet you were Glad to see this guy done. The only problem with doing these guys so large is that those lines full of notches keep going on and on and on and o n .
Excellent work in this guy, Very disciplined work
