I'm the proud owner of Bongo the Tiki. That's what we've called the wonderful masterpiece that Marcus Thorn created which has a wonderfully welcoming face and the most incredible bongos. When my husband wanted to buy me a tiki for my birthday, I was concerned 'cause I didn't want one that seemed too menacing. I wanted it in our front foyer to welcome guests to our home. We discussed this with Marcus and he was happy to oblige, even though it wasn't strictly traditional. The end product is now the centrepiece of our home. Bongo the Tiki is convincing as a bongo player and the photos that Marcus has posted to date don't do him justice. Bongo the Tiki lives and breathes. He's incredible. He smiles, he's cheeky and he plays the bongos and his hands and feet seem to have movement - what more could a girl want. The workmanship that has gone into him is great. Marcus has done a fantastic job. To answer a question posted on the forum - Bongo the Tiki stands quite well even though it appears that his feet don't touch the ground - an outcome achieved by Marcus brilliance. Sensational addition to our family. Thank you Marcus

Hey Marcus- This guy is a gem... I've always really liked that '60's vibe, and this one's got it. A fine piece!

Here are the last photos of "Bongo the Tiki" - I cannot express how much I enjoyed carving this one - and I think it shows in his smile!

Astrid I am so humbled by your words - so happy that you guys have become a family with Bongo - hope the cats dig him.

Haikai, Sam, Harro, Hewey, JohnnyP, Loki and Sabu the Coconut Boy - thanks so much for your positive feedback.
Pdrake - no laser mate- that would take away all the fun.
Benzart - when a master like yourself gives me such high compliments it only proves that I am showing my work to the right people, who can appreciate carving both traditional and "quirky".

Next project will be New Zealand Mauri - hope to post some pics before I head off to the states next month.

That is a masterpiece! Truly original too. I love the colour on the drums as well. He's also a lot bigger than I thought (seeing him next to you).

Congrats to the owner!

They hardly ever laminate real bongos like that anymore. What a beauty. As a tiki freak and a drummer, I'm just crazy about that carving!

MAn, do I feel like a slacker. Nice Job. Looks like he can play with Danny's tiki thats just above and soon to be just under this post.

On the drums, is that just stain/paint or different pieces of wood. Its so good, you really can't tell.
