gotta love tikis and drums....I couldn't quite picture where this was going after just one
post....but I can see clearly now. Looks like we're gonna have another really nice one.
I like the "motion" in the hands.

Ben - thanks I am really loving this one - a traditional with a twist - going as fast as I can - more pics soon. I have just got my first order for a Mauri tradional tiki - the guy that wants him owns a big surf company OceanEarth - can hardly wait to get into that one - tattooed warrior.

Ocean and Earth! Whoa, dude you got some big name clients. My fave is mooneyes though (Im a mooneyes nut). Cant wait to see what you do with the traditional warrior.

Its also cool to know there is demand for such tikis down under. I suppose when they are as good as yours it is no surprise though.

Man that guy is so smooth (Marus or the tiki - both actually!)

Very nice, your rough tikis are cleaner than my finished tikis

Great design too.

The feet on this one are great and i love the movement of the hands on the drums. This piece really shows great planning and thought. Keep kicking it bro.

Marcus, I really like the deep, 3D design of the beatnik tiki. As good as any of the vintage stuff out there. The drums are really sweet. With his feet like that, does he still stand up well? The feet look like they took a little time. Very nice one!

Sabu
