Thanks laojia,Benzart,KAHAKA, big daddy, jab tiki and VonTiki, as usual your comment maters a lot, it's nice to get some feedback, especially when I know how talented you guys are.
laojia, yes I've been thinking that it would be a great exercise to start copying some of my favorite museum pieces and I wouldn't mind owning some of these anyway so... it's all good dude.
Ok, voila I've cleaned up the little Ku that I've done a while back:

Hi Tahitiki, this Ku looks perfect with a really small size. I'm sure you stopped breathing a lot especially when you drilled between the body and the headress, it's spectacular.

Bravo,


Benjamin.

I agree with the rest, that's one smokin' lil' Tiki!
The wood does look a lot like palm, but it's rattan you say?
I gotta try some of that.
