That looks more authentic than most of the stuff I see on ebay! Very cool piece - what's next?

Looks very cool Johnny! It looks like an antique, that's a very cool technique you are using to do that.

Hey everybody,
Thanks a lot. The pictures came out blurryer than they looked on my computer.

Congatiki- I think Kudos is an un-tiki word- but thanks anyways.

Tikigap / Bete- I was referring to north for Tiki Land point of view- north meaning not Florida or SoCal. Not to the un-tiki Mason-Dixon line that separates us.

Surf-n-turf- The sharks tooth thingy did take a long long time (ask Kingstyedye) to complete-thanks for noticing.

Paipo-Thank you for the comments- my goal is to look as authentic as possible and I am slowly learning how to carve and still have a long ways to go.

BK- Yes I would love to get a source for some authentic materials. I felt pretty silly standing by the road picking through a rotten carcass like a vulture--Ahhh, what we do for fun. Not exactly sure of the region from PNG, I found a picture in a book, but it wasn't identified as to where it was from.


I do have a few more bones if anybody wants one of these. For reference this is about 6 inches long.

I just finished reading all 24 pages of the un-tiki thread and I have to ask: Most of my carvings and interest are PNG influenced and I think they fit the tiki definition, but are they? I've been the the Mai Kai in Florida and much of their decoration is New Guinea influenced (much of it very close to authentic looking) so I've been using that as my yardstick. Also I have seen fish carvings in other tiki bars so I didn't think they were out of place. What do you think?

Thanks again.
JP

Keep posting and figure it out later. One man's tiki is anothers not-so-tiki-knockoff. Your stuff comes from your creativity not someone else opinion. Besides they kick as#.

Thanks AlohaStation.

This is a PNG horn or flute and was my project for the rainy day. I found photos of one for sale on Ebay, but it had a dogs head and I changed it to a crocodiles head, which were also often used.

I hollowed out the end of the horn by drilling a hole from the end down to the mouth hole. Next I opened the opening by using a chainsaw and plunging and twisting the bar while cutting until the bar was fully in the log. The wall thickness at the end is less than 1/2 inch. It is made out of elm wood and is just about 3 feet long. This thing makes some weird sounds.







Maybe stain tomorrow.

Thanks for looking.
JP

Looks like the flute will bite you if you don't play it right. I wanna hear it, can't you include some sopund bytes? Looks really neat.

Personally, I can't see how work based on South Seas artifacts couldn't be tiki. To me the idea of someone getting home from work , or sitting in suburbia somewhere, and carving themself an obscure and primitive object - that epitomises the whole concept of tiki.

I've never been much into PNG stuff, being much more a classical Polynesian fan, but I'm really starting to warm to it. You're doing some very cool pieces, and the new one is no exception.

Nice work on the flute stopper! The originals are among the most highly collected PNG artifacts, and consequently most are very, very expensive. That's a quality job and looks very authentic.
