Thanks guys, it's always good to hear such nice things.

Here's another Tangaroa for you. I love the look of that smoked bone. OK guys, I've set up the joke, now let 'em rip!


Tang and eel together


I have a question for you all. I know there are a lot of stories about Tangaroa being the god of the sea. I've seen Tangaroa in a few different forms such as the one above, but also as a twisty snake-like sea creature with arms and other ways too if I'm not mistaken. Is it safe to say that they are all different depictions of the same god, Tangaroa, or are they all different things?

Thanks again!

They could mean different things/interpretations.. Different Islands had similar mythologies, too. Tangaroa is Maori mythology- Kanaloa was god of the sea in Hawaiian mythology.. Associated with the squid or octopus.

I've looked at the eel about 6 times already, that is fantastic. You couldn't have layed it out any better, that piece has got some attitude.

Alright, now for the joke on the bone cook island dude.....

It's been a while since my last carve. We've finally sold our house and the stress of the whole thing left me creatively dead for a short while. But now that everything's worked out I wanted to carve one more bone before the move. I'll be making a mold of this guy too just like the one I did for the last Tang. There's a bit of smoothing and sanding to do yet, but he's pretty much finished.
Your basic Marq

Marq and Tang, together at last

I'm packing up my computer tomorrow sometime, so you probably wont hear from me until sometime this weekend.
Here is the info about
our move

Mahalo!

Looking good. So the FL carving ohana is expanding with a great addition. Let us know when you have settled in and maybe we can have Carving/welcome party for you.

Let me expand on that and say you are a great addition to the SOUTHEAST carving ohana (OK-so that's probably 90% FL). Welcome to the sunny and WARM south! Man aint built to live in Wisconsin! Keep up the great work.

Both the Eel and the Octopus are quite superb, I'm blown away by those suckers on the Octopus, must have taken some time and pacience, look forward to the completed piece, a masterpiece me thinks.
Regards

Hi Fink,

It's been a while since your last carving, indeed, but this marq is fabulous.
Goddluck for your move, I'm moving too but still in France still dreaming of USA's east coast

Benjamin.

Hello again everyone! All moved in and back to carving once more. Florida's nice and all, but the damned tropical, floral-scented ocean breeze keeps blowing my garage door shut. It's a wonderful problem to have.
Here is a Seahorse that is a commission for a TCer. The eye is a little piece of pua shell from New Zealand.





I didn't stain this one at all because the bone looked so pretty as it is.

I had a visitor today. Anybody recognize him? I watched him work his magic with the hook knife for a while.

I actually had Benzart carving a tiki in my garage!
Here he is with my son, Brendan.


Thanks for looking everybody!
