Nice carve! Looks like Chucky's wooden Maori cousin. So expressive and life like. If I had this carving I would keep it under a museum plexiglass box thing all padlocked down. Not for fear of it being stolen so much as the fear of him coming to life while I sleep. Killer carving as usual.

Aloha Marcus! That last tiki's body style wouldn't be inspired by Paul Fujimoto would it? Freddie
