It's been a while since I posted new work here. Just finished this one over the weekend. It was a scrap piece of Fl. Mahogany that was cut from a larger log. Weighs about 18lbs.The length is just over 4' long. The raised facial shape was burned to darken it before the stain was applied. All the tool marks were left to give it a handmade feel.The eyes are countoured but the head on shot does not show it well.Thanks for looking.

Very nice! Loved that you gave it that antique feel to it with leaving the marks in it.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Benz...I'm flying solo on the 4th, but I will be there for sure.
AS...ceramics, carving, built an entire tiki room, the backyard tiki gardens, we've been busy. I just dont show much here anymore. Stop by for a drink sometime.

Here is the piece I started at the South Florida Tiki Jam IV at Benzarts house. It started as a drop piece of Florida Mahogany. Loosely based on a Koru pattern.The dimensions are 24" long and 10" wide. I humbly present a Pakeha version.





Thanks for looking.

Nice carve Loki - I think the koru-form was used by many different cultures n one form or another (celtic/chinese/meso-american/african, etc..) so you needn't humble yourself too much..

Your 'folk' approach (I mean that in the nicest least condesending way), has a very old/early feel to it - almost like the Chatham Island 'Moriori' peoples. They left behind a number of carved tree trunks (dendroglyphs) with a similar oragnic/serpentine feel. Kinda spooky - I bet it will look even better as time goes by..

If I may be so bold: I would suggest getting into that 'background' and smoothing some of the tool marks out a bit, and even rub the raised korus finer & finer to make it look as if its been handled for generations.

Id love a piece like that hanging on my wall!

Tama

WOW, Loki. I missed that Marq piece. Great Carve, and this Maori piece is equally as cool. What's Next?

Got the pleasure of seeing this piece at the beginning and at the end. Popped over for a quick visit and this sitting out in the sun drying. It is beautiful and an excellent carve. I agree with Tama that you should conitinue to work with it and give it a bit of a worn look. Also saw some other little tidbits that will be shown in due time. Keep carvin!
