BigT - Yeah, sorry, but it is kinda true I guess. If I said it tasted like alligator you really wouldn't have an idea what it was like. It really doesn't taste like chicken.

Here are a few more pics of the NZ Teko for Benella.....

Quit lusting after those Cypress trees!
Beautiful Teko you have there, what have you found out about him?
Nice boat trip too.

Is there a story about the Teko that I missed? Just trying to catch up from
a trip to southeast Tennessee and this was the first post I checked. Did you
carve it? I know that you and maybe a couple of other old farts could have.

Benno - not a lot. Here's what I know from the writing on the back of it: the carving is a Teko Teko (duh); it was carved from a NZ wood called Kauri; and, it was carved by a man named "Hemi" which is Jimmy or James. Last bit of info on it that I thought was N-2 is really N-Z for Zew Zealand (thanks TTT). I've found info on one carver who goes by James "Hemi" XXXXXX, but I don't know if it will be possible to find out if he made it.

Conga - naw man, this guy wuz not a G-Benno creation. I got it from a friend who got it from Craig's list. I've been trying to find out poop on it. How you bean? Long time no chippee?

So why call it by a word that does not exist in the reo ?
You diminish the mana of the ancestor it depicts

Easy now gentlemen the fact it that this carving is actually Very Nice and it has roots in NZ and is an Above average tourist piece, no matter what you call it. Teko, TekoTeko, Tiki, Warrior, NZ guy, Maori guy, whatever, To call it a teko and have someone get bent out of shape by that is pretty PETTY. If it offends so much why not just say you would "prefer you to call this a tekoteko as it may be disrespectful not to"? It is Not a big deal it is a wood carving.
Gman would you have more photos? I Love the detail on this guy?
