d0x - that looks more like a project for the wood guys to me. I reckon there are a few people here on TC who could do justice to a full figure Moai Kavakava (looks at BenZ), but I'm not one of them. The best one I've seen on TC was by AlienTiki, but that one was only a head done in profile.
Stone working is slow and difficult, so we tend to either focus on one part of the design if we want some sculptural depth (e.g. just the head), or flatten the volume of the overall piece to create an illusion of depth when portraying the full figure (like Tama's pieces).

Speaking of slow and diffcult:



FINISHED!

Oh, and in case you're wondering.....



Yes - the insistent tone of that floating head eventually broke down my will, and I drilled the holes.

One of my favourite comics when I was a kid was Marvel's "What If?", and for ages yesterday all all I could hear was this little voice saying "What If?...What If?" I couldn't visualise the holes in any other way, except for going ahead and drilling them - so that's what happened.
Ben - you are now officially banned from offering suggestions on future pieces. Imagine if you were building a car in your back yard, and Enzo Ferrari passes by and says "Hey - shouldn't that have four wheels?" If not for the Hawaiians, I'm sure Ben would have invented the Lono by himself anyway, so when the king of Lonos stops by and tells you to drill the damn holes, resistance is futile. Lesson learned!

In closing:

It must have been that floating head, it wasn't me!
I can't believe you drilled the holes, drilled the holes. Of COURSE he loks Absolutely great and you have increased his value by a LOT but Honestly, I feel a bit guilty for leting my ghost run loose in your shed,,it's just that, well, He was having such a Great time there and he reFUsed to even Think about leaving. I'll keep him under tighter reign next time. So now you have a "Holy" Lono, wasn't someone just asking you if you "Blessed" your works before you started?
Thanks Paipo, you are a true scholar and a gentleman!

And Paipo? Awesome, fantastic, WOW.

Patience is the big thing with stone yes - truckloads of it!

And I hope you get over your cold soon.

I glad you decided to go through with it!

The special something else was a special something else, Thanks for that, but the Buzzy picture has to be erased from my mind.

Great work Paipz. Who's the sheila? BTW, Johnny, a thread simply isnt a thread without a half naked Buzzy pin-up.

See what I mean?
