Paipo, what's with your thread, I think it's Haunted or something. NOW page 11 has the dark grey color with the same error as # 10 had, maybe this will fix it?

YEP!

Cheers Brad, pat, GROG, Perry, Ben, BigT, Tom, Mooney, JP, Kinny, seeksurf and hewey! Phew!

JP - While I do refine my designs on paper occasionally, nearly everything I post here is drawn directly onto the stone without any pre-planning, other than a vague thematic urge.In this case the words "savage" (see below) and "cannibal" - and I knew it had to incorporate a skull too. I really liked the quartz veins in this stone, and as soon as I picked it up I saw this evil little face in it!

Hewey, that pic is spot on for the feel I wanted - I often skim through my reference folder for vibe when I'm doing a new piece (less so now I've clocked up almost 50 pieces) or look through books relating to the appropriate culture, but in this case I didn't do any of that at all - but there are still some remarkable similarities. The little negative space in the forehead (and the details to either side), slitted eyes, jagged teeth - I'm thinking I should rename this piece now ("Mask of the Savage" anyone?)
I wonder if thinking of the word "savage" triggered some subconscious recall of this classic album cover? Hmmm....
(actually, I just had to check to see if I had that cover in my "tiki/albumcovers" folder...nope - but I do now!)

PS: Ben, I hope my thread isn't cursed!

PPS: Nothing to do with tiki whatsoever, but looks like we're in for "Big Wednesday" here tomorrow....

24.5' - we don't get that during hurricanes!! Do you have any local spots that can hold a swell that size? Perhaps it will wash up more stones for you to choose from.

Paipo how does big Wednesday look? You have to live close
to the beach living on that island of yours.

Sweed is the best.
