Kia ora,

After a quick detour to old Hawaii, I am back in NZ (in my mind at least). I've been back looking through Sotheby's auction papers lately and I came across a neat little Maori figure that they sold. The original is 5 1/2 inches tall, is absolutely magnificent, and sold for 57,000 dollars. The catalog entry suggests that it was carved in the Rougowkakaata tribal style in the early 19th century.




Lovely start Gman. He's got some great shape/form going on. -Any chance of seeing your reference pic? Im wondering whether he was part of another carving or free-standing; the latter were fairly rare compared to other Polynesian Isles. Cool choice of subject matter.

Tama

Much sweetness from down south. Lots of neat pictures, (I hate dial up) looks like you were busy over the holiday, while I was off playing around.

Hello-ha,

Here are a few update pics of the little figure carving. We have a tropical storm heading our way, Barry I think, and it is gonna be rainy so I imagine I'll chip on this guy tonight and tomorrow.











Thanks for stopping by,

G

Looking forward to seeing the next installment in the tiki carve.

And as always, thanks for the laugh!! Your photo's never fail to crack me up with the interesting angles and carving placements! Although, I don't think you've shown us the lap tiki before?

Thanks!!

You mean he'll be born in a cross-fire Hurricane? In the howling wind & pouring rain?? What a gas!

Another small work of brilliance coming I see - Love the patterning on his lips & he also seems to have a very serene facial expression at this stage. I am very interested to watch these little guys happening at the moment as Im desperate to push my knowledge of full 3-D figures. On a much smaller scale of course, but I really dont think there's a difference. Its all about understanding the form right? You got it. I want it. I hate you, too. colon (maybe we should each carve a 'green-eyed Monster' & swap?)

Hey Tama, thanks. Here are a few progress pics from the rest of the day. I hope he meets your approval. Not sure what I wanna do next, so I think I'll sit and look at him for a while......











Thanks for looking,

Wow, What a Looker! Do I see One Freaky Finger beginning? I KNOW You Love those Freaky Fingerz, c'mon Admit it and lets see the goods. Really Tama hit on an important part of the carving; that calm, serene, confident and Powerful look about the man. You Definitely know he's in charge and won't take no crap from anyone. Thats a look that is difficult to achieve. And yes he's gonna become another masterpiece. One of these days when you grow up and learn to carve,,,OH WAIT, you already did and have, HA, I Knew it would happen!

Thanks folks. This guy has been fighting me a bit. Now I'm being nice and all, and he is just kicking and screaming all the way....dirty little bugger. Anyway, I've got his number and instead of letting him beat me, I pushed him hard all day. He did eventually kick my a$$, but I think I got the better of him. Here are some pics.











Thanks for looking,

G

Wow GMAN he looks fabulous! Thanks for pushing so hard to get him to comply with your chisels. I really like the details as they are taking shape.

And a special thanks for only posting one picture where I had to turn my computer screen to see it in the right direction.
