WOW, Master Ben ! This eye is spectacular and sticks perfectly to this spectacular Marquesan figure.
Do you always got some eye ball in your pockets everywhere you go to do some masterpiece wherever you are ? I don't ask about knives or wood because I always got the carvin' Jack and some knives and wood in my pockets in case of boring moments

Benjamin.

What's next wise Ben?
Nice to see that you could make it to the Hukilau and still sit
poolside and carve away.
Beautiful work on the Marq.

Ben,

As usual, this "raises the bar" again - and it is interesting to me, as a statistician, mathmatician, partytician, to know just how far that bar can be raised.

Very awesome!

Thanks, man.

Thanks TikiLizard, the eye is from a paua shell sent to me by one of our Kiwi friends from down under.

Benella, Thanks for telling everyone my secret, Yes I Always carry around a pocket full of eyes in just case I go blind and lose my way, Or in case I have a piece that needs an eye, Or, or ? Thanks ben, Got a Hook blade in that there c-jack?

Thanks Laojia, Yes, he Can be called "Old Blue eyes", I'm sure Frankie wouldn't mind.
The details are all from the Hook Blade, I was just holding it when this guy came uo looking for more definition, the hook blade actually takes over and I just hold on for dear fingers.

Little lost Tiki, I hope you find your way . meanwhile Thanks for the props, (maybe I was aiming at a tang or a who knows what?)

Conga, thanks for the kind words. I was up too early do do much else as no one was around. One of these days we'll get you to one of these Hukilau events so we can really see ow it's done. Oh, not sure whats next?

T-Gap, Always a Pleasure when you stop by, it was Great seeing you at Hukilau, Finally. Oh, that Bar thingie, I don't pay much attention to it except for when someone is swinging it at me. Thanks for the comps.

Wow, the Marq is magnifcent! Those abalone eyes look like they've seen some visions... It's a weird and wonderful effect, kind of natural and surreal at the same time.

Beautiful work, Ben!

You know I've got a soft spot for the art of the Marquesas... and this one is a fine carving!

Love the detail work in the headress, and a perfect color for this guy.
