Not embellished and not tiki but most of the other posts of my work are in this thread.

So . . . this is a sculptural piece created from a fire agate in the shape of a sperm whale (plus a star ruby and blue fossil mammoth ivory bark).

I call it Enewetak Sunset in memory of the role of Enewetak in the history or the whaling fisheries and in the US nuclear tests after WWII.

First the sperm whale fire agate (note the jaw line and an eye with the proper placement):




Next - ENEWETAK SUNSET:

SKULL TABLE LAMP - Another non-TIKI project made from a Squid Sqorpion Squll bowl purchased from the Tiki Farm (MakeDaMug). A Squid Sqorpion Squll table lamp - easy and it turned out nice. Cost was the bowl plus $17 for the lamp and shade at Walmart. Total about $40. A nice gift for a grandson (plus two for my tiki shrine).

Nice job Timid. Starting with good materials helps eh?; the glaze on that skull is deee-licious! Can we see a piccy of your 'shrine'..?

"Pirate Hat" sans eye patch. Sorry, I haven't been able to get a good black "Amish" hat yet. Still looking . . .



Thanks to Bullet for the hat-ornament idea. A better image of Paipo's carving appears in an earlier post to this thread.

Where have I seen that hat before? - is that the one worn by Harrison Ford in 'Indiana Jones: the Treasure of Tane'..?

Very cool, although it might spoil your chances of being invited in for a cup of Amish tea..

Some new embellishments -

First, two pics of a my new cane (showing the handle only) . . . natural shape, unknown wood, star ruby eye added to produce the ELEPHANT CANE:





Next a jade mask by Sharon Painter-Arps with added star ruby (reddish/purple color) eyes added:



That is all.

Creepy but cool; a 'low-brow' installation piece..? - Id love to see that with dry-ice 'smoke' billowing around the occy legs and over the skull. Again, very Indiana Jones.. Is there something youre not telling us..?

I LOVE that octopus! Where'd you find him?

I'm enjoying seeing pics of your work. Very cool.

Very cool, your work lets the observers imagination run rampant.
You have a great imagination also to turn out these great pieces.
