Wow! So organic looking! It has an interesting visual reference to Ouroboros: the worm(dragon) eating it's own tail. Beautiful work.

Ahoy! Back from my travels, (sort of) refreshed and brimming with new ideas. Now I just need to find the time to implement them...and to post all the museum pics I took. Tiki is much more elusive in the urban jungles of Oz than here in NZ, but I did discover some remote pockets of savage splendour, and also scored myself 27lb of SA's finest....looks like another visit to Tama's is on the cards

Not a lot of tiki going down in the shed at the moment, but I did finish this Melanesian style boar tusk amulet, fashioned from some very nice tool-grade argillite:

Better pic of the sweet patterning in the stone. This stuff rings like metal when it is struck:


Thanks to everyone for keeping the torch burning while I was away!

Only just saw this again, but in relation to the above piece - interesting! Maybe that's why I picked it up again? I actually have a pic of a tusk that looks exactly like a serpent about to consume its tail, complete with gaping jaws and eyes!
