Unbelievable progress....you sure skipped a few of the intermediate steps. Something tells me you must've been making other cool stuff before you channeled your energy into these guys? You have some pretty accomplished sculptural chops going on there.


..and then there's this one, who looks like he could've stepped straight out of the Bishop Museum:


That really is one of the nicest Ku carvings I've yet seen - anywhere. I love the classical style, and the work on the headdress is superbly controlled. I would like to see a little bit more volume and strength in the limbs though, to match the power you've achieved in the head (this is referring to the last two only). I can feel the tension in his legs.

What's next? Ever thought of tackling a Marquesan?

PS how about changing the "kook" in your sig to "pipeline master"?

Wow! Not much more to be said here. Very fine piece. Staring at that wood is really working for you. Very refined and powerful carving. Congratulations!
