Wow Tahitiki, This guy is Incredible!

How can you get more incredible than this,, Put him on a Beautifully carved tiki base thats how!

And THEN there was this matter of a Furniture/Museum grade Drum,,Perfect finish here and just as perfect carving. Love the cowry shells,although I'm not a fan of the cordage it does work..





It DOESN"T get any Better than THIS

Thanks all of you for the sweet comments.
Ben, about the drum, I agree on the ropes, it's not that great plus it doesn't even work that great either. The drum only sounds great when left in the sun for couple hours. I want to change it at some point but I'm not sure how to do it right, meaning sound wise and visually... any ideas?

I was trying to go with the Polynesian triangle, Hawaii / New Zealand / Easter Island, but I like tahitian tikis too much so I substitute Easter Island for the Marquesas. Glad you guys like it.

YES, these faces on the base are just impossible to describe in words. Excellent from the triangle. Love all the eyes and all the everything, Just Awesome.

Sorry I can't give you advice on the drum but I'm sure the Buzz man will be glad to give up a few hints, though I wouldn't worry much about it since it is Already near perfect.
