Great idea for a pendant, and great execution at a very small scale!

I wish you the best of luck on the sale of it Johnny.

Cool. Skulls around your skull rack and the whoile skull rack goes around your own skull. I wonder what the PNG people would say?

Mr.P. Very nice...you've really got that Maripi down. The teeny skull rack pendant is a great idea...really nice. Did you carve those skulls too?

Hi,

Yes I did carve the little skulls out of bone. I'm designing a whole series using them, this was just the test piece. The red wood is it's natural color and it is a little holographic also, the wood is somewhat transparent in places and reflects light like a tiger's eye stone. The shop called it bloodwood. The pendent is still available and I am going to post it in Marketplace soon.

I had a productive weekend and retrieved some new logs. This should keep me busy for a while.

The big one is about 8 feet long and is destined to become a garamut, or large slit gong.









Something new, bone and woodcarvings, I saw some South Seas weapons that were stone heads on wooden shafts, so I tried a prototype, but I think I am going to carve in some details and finish it off.

Nice haul Johnny!

I went this past weekend to check on a log that I hope to start on in a few weeks. I think it is like 12 or so feet long and almost 3 feet thick.
Its going to be 2 or 3 quarter scale canoes. One will go to my inlaws for their luau. It will hold drinks and ice.

Cool idea JP! Be sure to post finished pics in the 'stone (q&a) + Gallery' when its done! Gman would probably find a good use for one of those..

You look like a kid on Christmas morning in that photo. You are going to be a busy boy.
