oops! sorry to see that Teko Teko lost his head, hope he wasn't upset that the Cards took the
first game of the series! Or is he a Cardinal fan and you punched him out with the pighammer?
You gonna try to fix him or what?

You can fix it. Just glue it first with super glue. Then after that sets. Drill a hole for a dowel thru his nesk into the body or head whichever is easier. Glue in a dowel then go the other way. Easy, fixed. We can fix him.

Gman-
I don't know what happened. I marked him up for a session with the saw and I guess he had enough. I left the room and when I came back he took a header right into the fireplace surround.

Conga- I thought he was a Tigers fan.

Bete- I'm not the first person to loose a carving because it fell over, thanks for the concern though.

Benzart- That is a great idea. I think we can save him. --- Nurse, drill please, now dowel rod, glue. Let's close him up. This patient might survive

Here is today's project. I really thought the jade piece that Tama was working on was really neat and it totally sidetracked me today. This is my version in maple. I don't know how the ancients ever did this in stone, wood with power tools was difficult enough. This is the first Hei Tiki I've done and they are a lot more complicated than they look. I found the same piece that inspired Tama's commission and that Paipo posted in the book Oceanic art, JP Meyer on page 553



Here is another shark tooth flesh knife I am working on. This one is going to be for sale.




Thanks for looking,

JP

JP,

I LOVE that hei-tiki. If you decide to part with him, contact me. Too bad about the big guy. I say fix him up with glue and dowel and finish him out. He's too cool to quit on. PIGHAMMER!

Kia ora JP. Bummer about the teko-teko, good luck with surgury...

The Matau/Hei-tiki is awesome! Looks like youve been making them all your life! I should know; not a day goes by without me poring over images of the old works...

Ka pai! Tama

Thanks guys-hope everybody had a great Halloween!

I am going to fix the Picasso piece tiki. I bought a dowel like Benzart suggested and will work on him this weekend. Last weekend was rainy and cold so decided to hibernate a bit.

Here is the update on the flesh knife. It is shaped and been through the first sanding. Time for detail work and clean up. This piece is still available. If nobody claims it I will post it in the marketplace when I am through.



Thanks for looking

John

JP,

The knife is looking real nice. I like it. Do you have enough teeth for it?

I never got my artifact style hei-tiki....you must have mailed it to the wrong address
