Marcus, I am always in Awe of the larger carvings folks here do. Yours are certainly no exception.



Awesome!

Man, that looks like some hard ass wood. Just has a heavy look to it. Probably not though?

The headress is great Marcus, haven't seen anything like that yet. Looking great!

Thanks for the pics!

Definitely a Beautiful, traditional piece and I have the Perfect spot for him right next to my front door. Marcus, you Really have a God given talent that most carvers would sell their soul for. You are a fortunate man!

Benzart thanks once again for your kind words of encouragement carving master, this tiki was promised to a Hot Rod Mag as they want to put him in their Foyer but I would be happy to carve you a smaller tiki that I could post to you.
Tamapoutini - I guess I could set a tiki on a raft to you mate. Thanks to Babalu Haikai Lakesurfer GMan Hewey McTiki Johnny P for your positive feedback as always.

I have been selected to carve for a very prestigous exhibit in September and have been spending most of my time on this big fella - he is 16 foot long by 2 foot across (I am under restrictions about posting any pics of this tiki until after the exhibit - which is a bit of a drag, but makes him even more mysterious and builds some suspense for you all) He will be the "Tiki Beat" tiki once completed and hope to use him for mugs and stuff. As I am heading off for two weeks to Hawaii in July I have been hammering away hard core to get some progress on this one.

More progress shots on the akua for you all to check out..
