Johnny that canoe prow is as nice as it gets. You're just kidding us
right...you just returned from a trip to New Guinea where you traded
some Lions memorabilia?
Seriously, amazing vision and creation.

WOW!! Spectacular piece. Well worth the years time. Its good to see that you took the picture on a white sandy beach - with the sand slipping between the toes.

Thank you very much everybody, the encouragement keeps me going.

Conga, no I haven't been to New Guinea, but our water well connects to the Sepik River.

Here are some better pictures, with better contrast, next to our new bamboo grove.

Very impressive. Looks like the well connection is inspirational. Seriously...I recently was fortunate enough to spend some time at the deYoung, and well, nobody would know this wasn't actually from that area. Very very nice work.

Thanks everybody.

Big things coming, look at this group of logs I get to bring home. The one I am standing on is about 3 ft in diameter.
