Keigs you are certainly THE master of the WITCO style, as it should be! Your work just
has that "something extra" that sets it apart. Always look forward to updates on this
thread.

thanks Benz I am going to move down there if the weather does not shape up soon!!! Thanks to all for the inspiring comments. Here is a few new pieces both are based on Witco designs. The second picture is going to be a mail box holder if the person likes the tiki it is over 4 ft tall.

That mail-box tiki?/whatever is really different and nicely done, that mailman is gonna get a shock, I dig the leopard skin w/carvings too.

The mask (4 in a row) looks like the entrance piece (Witco) to Hala Kahiki in CHi town - very cool stuff as usual!

thanks sneakyjack and tikigap the Lono is made of cedar and the masks and spears are based on a Witco design called the "Directors" I believe they are at the entrance of the Hala Kahiki in CHi town. Here are some better pics of the Lono
finished. My kids call him Beater head because they think the headdress looks like an egg beater
