Wow! Love 'em both! G is indeed a lucky fellow if he's getting both of these. The croc horns look like a lot of work with all the intricate surface detailing - and those teeth! You seem to pick really challenging designs that no-one else has tried and nail them every time. I still want to see more of those big slit gongs too....

"G is indeed a lucky fellow."

You've got that right! I can't wait to see this horn in person. I've heard it over the phone, and let me tell you, it sounds as cool as it looks! This is going to be a treasured addition to my collection of "crazy" things. As I post pics of stuff in my thread, you will see other pieces from JohnnyP scattered around my house - a shark tooth weapon, a club, the JPigHammer, a hei-tiki, and now this horn. Johnny's carvings have a flow and energy about them that I have not seen elsewhere. The pieces that I have acquired are some of my favorite possessions.

-G

Thanks guys for the props.

Here is a jade hook I did for a friend at work. About 3/4 of an inch wide.

Way to go JP! I know its been a while since youve banged the old rocks together (since pg41!), but I also know progress when I see it! Looks as though youre pushing the design side of your matau/hooks and becoming more familiar/confident with jade. Keep it up!

Great looking croc-bong that Gman is 'tooting' on back there too!

Tama

Thanks Ben and Tama, I couldn't have done this without pouring over your threads to learn what I could.

Gman, no it wasn't finished I did have to go back and clean it up. The macro shot, shows every scratch, so I spent a lot of time sanding.

Thanks for the support.
