PAIPO! Love the Rock tiki, that surface effect is Perfect and looks like it was time consuming.
Kuanko though is the Real top dog here with obviously more detail and hollowing out He has interesting and different surface textures too which is really refreshing to see. It just shows how much you care to make your pieces a cut above,, LOVE IT!
You can stay away as long as you like as long as you keep bringing back stuff this good. (well not Quite as long as you like! )

WOW, Just in time I see, Paips, this IS one of the Smartest detailed pieces you've done in awhile. i Love the depth and still the sharp lines that follow around the whole guy. It would be the perfect Halloween/Pumpkin looking tiki around. I love how crisp you get the cord holes/channels/fittings or whatever it is, its like it was all machined... HEY, Did you go and get hooked up on a CNC machine???


This Ku looks Alive!
Now I'll just leave the rocks to you!

VEERY Carefully, I'm sure and probably with a few choice words thrown out there too. Those choppers are Really easy to do, Just ask Paipo, I have NO Trouble at all when he does'em for ME.

Very nice, indeed.
We have some really good material here in the High Desert of California (Mojave Desert area)
that, I think, would be great for this type of art. I call it "Chocolate Jasper". It is
a very solid, chocolate colored jasper, with occasional cream colored veins running throughout.
Dig the detail in this piece.

Blackwater buma blows my mind! The execution is crisp and beautiful with classic lines - but with a Paipo feel! I can't stop staring at it!!!!

Wow...I REALLY need to stop by more often! great stuff, my friend!

Thanks BigT, Jen, Ben, Clarita, feekee, Ben again, Seeks, harro, sneaks, Polynesiac and Duddy. Those teeth aren't as hard as they look although cutting and shaping the mouth on that one was a real pain in the @#$! Feekee - howsabout you tackle some of those rocks and post up some pics for us to see? While you're at it send me a few!

Here's #61 - I wanted to do a traditional pole-style Marq but he sort of veered off into cannibal territory again. Each piece seems to be a first of some sort lately - this one is the thickest/chunkiest piece I've ever done and most of the work is on the sides rather than the front. I think the skull is also the smallest component I've ever carved! Enjoy!
