Just tried myself on a bunch of bone fish hooks pendants. Hooks are made from cows bones from Petco and the top part are chicken bones. Bigger one is 1 7/8" tall.

I've been working on a Maori pole, for a while. It's been soooo much work, I had no idea. I already revised the design about 20 times and i'm still not fully satisfied with the results but i'm getting there. It's about 5.5' tall.

Id say he is looking incredible! The time and concentration that you
put into him is going to leave you with a masterpiece.

Beautiful pole Tahitiki! Very nice! Really! Do you manage some Moko before the finishing?

Thanks for all the good words. I've actually work a bit on it this week and start seeing better results with the body shape. It's finally going closer to where i want it to go. I'll post some progress picts next week. And yes I'm definitively going to work on a Moko and some tats when the main carving is done.

I like the clean lines. Gives good definition to the shadows.
Nicely done!
