Hello TC'ers! Thank's for reply.

BigTS: Thnx for enthusiasm and knd word!

Bennno: What do you here, I thought meet Gmail!!! Thank's for reply bro'

Kon-Hemsby: Thank's for the comp' !

BenZ: Hey sensei carver, it's too much honor for me with such compliments... Respect is first for you!

Big Daddy: Happy to see you here! This is a bit thanks to you, I remember where come from that piece of wood... And I still have half!

Tahitiki: Thank's for stopping here, me too I prefer free Kavakava...

Clarita: Yes Kavakavenstein it's alive and free! But be quiet, after passed some month to carved him I'm sure I can control it...

Some month to carve him, but also somes pictures of the work in progress during this time ( in color ). I share these photos that can be used if other sculptors want to engage in this kind of work...

The first steps are described
HERE, bottom of the page.

Then, the outline of the face, the ribs



ears


spine, it was a long evening


drilling the eyes, making inlays with bones and african blackwood. There I sweated...




angry mouth, too small I think


buttocks and legs


feet, careful not to break...


sanded



engrave the head with twin tangatamanu


Finishing hot linseed oil and polishing the(sunny)day after










This kind of sculptures are very specific in Polynesian art, we do not find anywhere else and many mysteries still prevail around this island lost so far in the east Pacific.
In many books have found representations of moai Kavakava simply with the explanation "ancestor figure" or other things like that. Other books reproduce the legend of King Tuu-ko-ihu, which passed by a hill met two "spirits" sleepy, frightened by their appearance he carved his vision in a hunk of Toromiro.
I also found another theory in a book about an ethnological expedition to Easter Island in 1964/65. Theory that I have not seen anywhere else, a doctor has examined these strange statues is inferred that this skinny men suffered from to dehydration, maybe have been reduced to drinking seawater or the brackish water, sources of clear water appears to be rare on Easter Island. He also said that the "fracture" between the dorsal and lumbar vertebrae and the Enlarged Thyroid Gland and the collapse of the neck, could be signs of radiation.
Another strange thing, these statues do not have body character of polynesian people. It recalls that several migrations took place around Easter Island and not necessarily from the west. Thus these moai kavakava might be representatives of survivors of the original inhabitants of the island carved by Polynesian immigrants probably frightened by their emaciated appearance.
I do not know if this is true, in any case these moai Kavakava have not finished to fascinate us.

Thank's for looking!

Have a nice day!


Jérôme.

Very nice Kavakava. It shows in your work and descriptions that you have done your homework concerning this guy. Those inlaid eyes are amazing as well.
