Thanks, Lennie, Benella, and Kino!
Yes, it's tough to keep a stock of wood.
I'm always accepting donations.

So I finished the Marq I started last weekend at the chop:


I love the way this one came out. It's kind of funny to me how good tikis just happen. I just started carving without a plan, just to be busy at the chop.
Sometimes I get lucky.

I love the way you do the legs, it's very "Picasso" to me. Cool stuff man.

I've been busy working on my entree into the Tikot show at Freaky Boutiki Gallery http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=33997&forum=17&98

The card drawn for me was "Strength".
"The design of this card is fairly constant across tarot decks. The key characters are that of a woman and a lion, with the woman looking calm and gentle, yet dominant over the lion.


The lion represents our strong inner passions, the woman purity. The woman, confident in her abilities, easily tames the lion with virtually no physical strength.
True Strength is fortitude of character, and the ability to not only control the emotions, but to rise above them, and triumph over all out lower impulses and desires."

I received my inspiration from Tiki-Kate's thread on Cannibal carvings: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=33940&forum=5&hilite=cannibal
mainly this pic:



I combined the first two to come up with my version.

I just finished burning and sanding it, It still need to trim some parts, fill in areas, and stain it.
Not quite done, but will be in another day or two.
