Hey friends,

this time I´m busy with the move of my girlfrinds apartment.
But in the moment I have a litte bit time, because she is packing her clothes.
And so I can post the pics of the island Rügen.

Tamapoutini, AlohaStation, Moondance, tikiracer, benella and Paipo thanks a lot for your great entries.

tikiracer, in the next pics you can see the size of the papua mask.
And you other guys I hope you´ll enjoy the new pics.
I hope, that I don´t promise to much.


Here we were at the Königsstuhl. That´s a real impressive chalk coast in the north of the island. Many poets and artists were inspirit by these giant cliffs. One of the well known is Caspar David Friedrich.


Here we came ashore!


Shock! The log is bigger than the log of the last Tiki. That means a hard job!


Than I did remember myself on Benzarts wise words. "safety first, don´t climb on an old,
wooden leader and carve without holding on!" Than I organiced a stage,
but it don´t suffice and so it was a dizzy undertaking again. Sorry Benzart, I tried!


Shit, that was realy high and a cosmic feeling!


That´s my to busy helping Tiki partners Michael and Andi. They figured out the most of the structures.
Thanks a lot guys!


Here some details!


That´s the guests of the live carving show and voila the finished god!


That´s the pictures of the kids painting lessons with Michael and Andi.




Here you can see our stall inside the Surfhostels tiki bar.





Stefanie and Helmut from Austria. They sailed 3 years through the south sea and have present about this long and interestig trip. In front of the pic withe the hat, that´s Achim the owner of the Surfhostel.

The drum circle with kids at the last day. tikiracer, here you can see the size of the papua mask.


And this pic is for Paipo. A Paradise for a stone collector! Fire stones, fossils .... We stood there for a long time. It was wonderful!


That was a extra carving job, I´ve done during the week.


So, now I hope you got a little impression of this great Tiki week of the island Rügen.

Greeting, Haikai

Just blown away....unbelievable...sjsjhskjskjsxkskm cm dc

Whew! Okay, got it together now! It's so cool you can find commissions to do these amazing large sculptures in Germany. You're really living the dream over there. I feel there's been a lack of big log action on TC this year, so thanks for giving me my fix! The ladder pics are priceless...

Oh and this:


Could be this!


Uncanny...looks like the very same stones that make up our beaches - mostly greywacke and quartz. I hope you picked up a few pieces to use in your projects!

Woah.. Fantastic Tiki Week and Beautiful tikis. Nice try with the carving platform, I see you were safe and comfortable on the scaffold while holding those Dangerous chisels, but when using the chainsaw, you were perched on a Slippery ladderon one foot and you had the other foot in the tiki's mouth hoping he would hold it fast.
Well at least you ended up with all your limbs. Excellent job on the tikis and I like everyone else are Drooling over the giant logs you seem to always find..

Greetings from Sweden and congratulations to all your beutiful work. It´s really inspiring to se someone carve logs (or should i say trees!) of that size. It´s also nice to see that you have something of a tiki "scene" in Deutschland, something we´re lacking here in Sweden.
Hope to see more of your high class work soon!
