Nice find on the lamp! These I picked up today and three more next Sunday...


I call this my "Cowl" cuz it looks like someone started to carve and owl and ended up with a cat?



Different "Cat".


A Witco "Sword", about 4' long!

Later!

Yah, Vitco I vould say. The face on the back is most unusual, these usually were just one-sided Moai carvings.

You know if I could SEE the damn thing I would have a better idea, but photographing a vertical object horizontally, as well as a dark object against white walls, is somewhat detrimental to detail reception.

BigBro you're a tough crowd! Can't you tell I'm an amateur? What should I do to improve the quality of the pics?

I came up on my first Witco piece over the weekend - and a sweet Mick Jagger Tiki at that!



Now I gotta do some reading and figure out how/if I should refinish him.
