Great work GMAN, the nice angles on your photos shows he's got the sinous "S" flow that a good Maori styled piece should have.

Excellent! He has a very smooth look that makes me want to reach out and touch it. How is that material to carve?

That looks smooth as a baby's bottom. All the features flow so well from one area to the next.

Rodeo - thanks for the "awesome!"

Paipo - Thanks for noticing the flow. I though a lot about this guy while I was traveling for work. I came home and just let loose on him. He worked out well.

Finky - Thanks, but you no touch! But he is niiiice and smooth!

JohnnyP - Thanks. I tried to give him two orders of smooth and flow. I hope he got both.

Conga - Thanks for the praise, I try.

Hewey - Killer! Thanks!

All,

I went out and finished this guy up in the style of the ancients. Before the Europeans came and they started using red sealing wax, they cut the eyes with a low iris and a high pupil. Later, these low eye spots were filled with red wax. I decided not to inlay paua and finish him out this way. I really like him. I tried to take some pics showing the curve of the bone and the back a little. Once it gets dark here, I have trouble getting good pics of the white bone. Thanks to all who commented today! Here he is:

Benz - thanks. I've been doing other non-tiki carvings lately as the TC has been a total buzz-kill. I come here for artistic inspiration and support, not argumentative crap. Anyway, I'm posting another bone carving just for you. See below

Loki - you know where I am. Anytime you want to come up, I will carve with you all day. No secrets here.

All,

Here is another bone pendant I made from a scrap that was staring at me. You know how it is. This is what it wanted to be....an adze with a head....





Now get back to work!

-Gman

Benz - More? More you say? Ok, here is another one....

All,

Here is a bone Taniwha. I'm not sure if he is done yet. I may soak him in my antique formula...what say you? White or antiqued? So here you are, the three bone pendants I made last night and today. I hopee you likee!







Thanks for looking,

Gman

Dude, you ate your Wheaties this morning. Good grief! The Taniwha is nice, what is the legend behind that? Sweet. I'd give that guy and the adze the soak. Leave the first one white.

Johnny and Benz - thanks for chiming in. Yep I had my wheaties and some crack and I've been sniffing glue. Here's one more.....

I'm still going. Here is a double-barbed harpoon tip. These were the four usable pieces I cut off of this soup bone. I kept the smaller pieces I cut off of these to make beads or other things out of. One soup bone down....a dozen or so soup bones to go!

My pictures get worse as the sun goes down (I hate the flash).



Thanks for looking,

Gman
