Benzart, I can't even start to comprehend the dedication to detail in your work. It gives a beginner like me LOTS to strive for. Keep doing what you're doing and how you're doing it - great work.

WOW Benz! The eagle head look very realistic! and I'm also impressed by the bone Lono...
My curiosity is piqued about the latest tiki mag. I will get it as soon as possible!

Benz, this eagle looks so good and so detailed. We have seen a close up on one that lives by the creek near us. How is it that you seem to just get better and better with every piece you make? Keep up the great work.

Man, I hate it when you do that!



Just kidding, of course. It's actually really cool to see you do something non-tiki. I've seen some pics of your sea life pieces and they are truely outstanding. I would really like to see you do some of that again!

Putitiki, Thanks for the kindness, I guess when you have done a Lot of carvings you just start looking for ways to stay interested by not doing the same old things and by getting into all the little corners and crevices and cleaning them up to the best of your ability.

Thanks Laojia, Yes definitely get the latest Tiki Mag, it has some great stuff in it not counting the story about me.lol Glad you like the new bone stuff.

Thanks T-Pak, Uh-Oh, you've seen the real deal up close which means I'm busted. Mine doesn't look real but when I saw the Wart hog tusk, it just looked like an Eagle so I carved away the stuff that didn't fit. As to why I keep getting better with every piece maybe it's your glasses getting worse every week? Have yer eyes checked recently?

Thanks Finky, yes this is the first non tiki piece I've done since I began carving again here in '04, guess it's about time.
Thanks again for your kind words in that story!

I was at an antiques place this weekend and saw a carved elephant tusk. Not unusual but my question is that it had a petina on it. Kind of a chocolate brown - is this a paint or a dye?

Nice. Love that facial expression. The tongue is really cool how it's longer on one side like some kind of wild grimace.

Man! Is it just me or have you been picking up the pace lately (carving wounds and all!)? All of the Benzart creativity, skill and details as always, just faster... Seriously, it's easy to just take for granted that each of your pieces is just as, or even more awesome than the last... You've got us spoiled, Ben.
