Here's one I've been working on. It a Taiaha Mask out of poplar. Still have a ways to go but It's coming along. Probably the hardest piece I have done detail wise.

Wow. Great start Tikimecula!

*One of the 'reasons' for intricate Maori surface decoration (on weaponry) was to confound/confuse/befuddle & generally overload the senses with 'otherworldly' stimulus/image - often as a diversion whilst you ran up and banged a few heads. Same with the flashing paua/abalone that was often inlaid for eyes.

This piece certainly holds the eye in that way - look out! behind you..!

The burning highlights the chiselwork nicely!

love the burning, adds even more texture. are you going to finish this in a light or dark stain? either way keep up the fantastic work.


mahaloz,

Here are some of my tikis... I call them mini tikis they are about 2 inches in diameter and about 12 inches high....Most of them are designed to hold business cards...

For lack of a better place to post my latest, I will try to resuscitate this thread with my last tiki for 2006. I was trying to replicate this bugger here that was posted a while ago

..keeping things as primitive as the source material. Got into some hard times with this palm logs so its a little more 'weathered' that I would like and the bodys a little squashed--other than that , am pretty happy with it even though painting it caught me a NICE sore throat to end the year with


comments? I know it won't be too gushing as this one sat in that garage a little TOO long--I coulda gone deeper with it but it needs to jooin its friends by the pool

I like it, reminds me of a little warrior. Maybe even a little football player. I like the little compact body. Squat

ya know what? he strikes me as BIRD LIKE---its weird. The arms are tight to the body like wings...I am not 100% happy with it but I think it will grow on me-plus hes with SIX other tikis and hes definitely the odd man out

Aloha!

I just recently decided to try my hand at carving tikis- and carving in general (September 2006). Whenever I go back home, to Honolulu, I try to return with a tiki or two. (I came back with five this last time)

After visiting many web sites from tiki artists, I wanted my own tiki and thought that the best way to get one the way I wanted was to make one the way I wanted. So, here's a sample of my first tiki. It's nowhere near done, as I do this when I have time to spare, I'm a student and an artist of a different sort and this is an exploration into a realm that I'm fascinated with and love, but have no clue as to what I'm actually doing, yet. Experience is the best teacher...

This tiki is only about 3 or 4 inches tall and carved with hand tools bought at a craft store. The block is maple. This is a tough thing to carve and for some reason, I'm beginning to think that carving a larger tiki would be easier. It's still fun as Hell, though!
