Ken,
That pic is a thumbnail. Along the top of the albums section is a tab that says "View". Click it and then open your pic. After it opens full size, right click your photo and check properties, copy and paste. It will be bigger, Great carving by the way.
Mahalo,
Al

Very cool! I like the Cook Islands tiki a lot...for a while there was a Marquesan guy on E-bay selling real carvings from there. They were beautiful...expensive, but the handiwork and woods were incredible.

Here is a Maori house panel image I am working on in solid cherry. It's in the "hollowing out" stage, which I do by hand right now. I SHOULD buy a router! The picture above it on the wood is the actual piece I am modeling it after.
