That snake carving is VERY realistic - excellent work! Nice tiki as always!

Ahoy here are a few more new cedar pieces, we have them up on our website if your interested and if anyone from Tiki Central is into buying one we'll give you some sort of decent discount.
It looks like I am doing a show at M Modern (Palm Springs) this July so I am thinking all Witco style wood art pieces, I may be posting some of those as that gets closer.
We are going back to the log supplier soon and I plan to do some large non-Tiki sculptures.

But below are the Tiki carvings...




Below is one of my Hawaiian modern interpretations, it runs about seven and a half feet high.







Just plain California modern, I have another larger one I am working on today.









Wood Easter Island Moai, I am planning to do some large versions of these.









The next two are front and back of a big 9 foot plus totem style, I did a "story" that runs up the back.















Thanks for looking and all the great (previous) comments, I have to get back to work.


My very best Alohas

Bosko

Aloha everyone here's the four pieces we sent to the big Tiki art show (for Hukilau) at the Harold Golen Gallery in Miami.
Take a look if you are there and say hello, if your not busy Saturday at Hukilau I am doing a Tiki talk which should be interesting.
In fact I have to get back to work on it right now.
























My very best Alohas

Bosko

Awesome stuff, too bad the Hukilau is so far away. Would love to see some stuff which has been posted here recently in their whole beauty instead of photos.

Bosko, I like all of your creations, but the framed moai in the canoe is way cool !

yeah that moai in the canoe is outstanding - classic Bosko, just awesome.

Would love to hear you talk about tiki one day.

That 9 footer with the story on the back is damn cool too.
