JohnnyP,

The detail cuts look great and really add to the overall look of the carving. Great job. I agree with the others, I think the loin cloth really looks great. Thanks for taking the time to post these pics.

Thank you everybody for the comments on the big PNG (Mai Kai) tiki I really do appreciate them. I am going to stain and finish him this weekend and will post his final pictures.

Here is my latest finished project. It is a shield or memorial tablet from the Gulf of Papua New Guinea. I took a couple elements I liked from a couple of shields and combined them for this one. It is made from a slab of pine and carved in shallow relief. The two pieces that inspired me are both on exhibit at Field Museum in Chicago and also in the book “Arts of the South Seas” Thanks to ManoKoa for posting the pictures of their visit to the Field Museum I used for the color detail. See General Tiki - Shared Inspiration thread.

In process


Here is me carving in shallow relief


Shallow carved, surface sanded





Final


Thanks for looking, have a great day!

JP

JP,

Man that looks sweet. You have been holding out on us....or did you just knock it out tonight after work??? That carving bar is coming in handy is it? What did you use to do the relief on the piece itself? Can you get that dime tip in there? Did you paint this one or did your wife help out? Now you need to drag it in the mud to give it an aged look. All that PNG stuff looks beat to
sh@*!

I've been cruising the PNG sites you sent me along with a few others and I'm getting pumped to try my hand at more PNG stuff. I saw a crocodile bench that was real cool. It was kinda like the bench I saw at Loki's....only with a croc head and tail.

-Gman

Very fine work and colors on that shield Johnny P. I like the classic look of the tiki as well.

More excellent stuff. I'm with GMAN, I think you've been holding out on us, so come clean and show us the rest of your stuff. Looks like this PNG stuff is Your bag Johnny.

JP, you've got some dedication! Next time I feel like nappin' at lunch instead of carving in our 70 degree January weather I will pull up your snow pictures.
