I echo everything that the other posters said, Seeks.

Both pieces are museum quality... and beyond.

Every little cut and mark, well thought out and executed.

Even the eyes... expertly painted.

Stop being so humble, and boast away!

You deserve the praise.

seek - amazing job on the totem, as everyone else has said - it looks like an original. The tightness of the lines and the flow from one character to another is very well executed. I especially like the chisel mark texture you applied - it really separates the forms beautifully.

Very impressive job!!!!!! thanks for sharing!

Man oh man, your work is amazing! I think the cracks in the lono look perfect. They give it an air of dignity and history. And that new piece is a true masterpiece.
Wow.

What I don't understand is how CLEAN your pieces are. I Know you must take Hours cutting every little wayward chip outta the way and making it look like it came oit of a giant carving machine,,,, HEY, Are you hiding the BIG Tools from us? You have a giant CNC Machine up there in your backwoods hideaway? C'mon 'Fess up, wheres it at?
You Know we Loves 'ya Man!

Seeks, that totem pole is pretty imposing. How tall is that piece? I've always loved big carvings, they make a real statement.

Your carving has improved on a steep curve to the point where I can't imagine that it could get much better. Very precise detail and design! Going through your thread again it seems like your work went from good to really good, then shot straight up to excellent. I'm really looking forward to the next installment on your thread!!

Cheers,

Aaron
