Just a quick update on the eyes of this one Probably from Malachite?







I swear there's some intelligence behind those eyes! I'm waiting for him to speak some Words O' Wisdom.

Thanks T-Mango, You snuck this one in while I was busy! I see he has you under his spell already, He's good. You can't at look those eyes directly for long and I se you found out how long.

Nomolos, yes seeing the total piece is very different, glad you liked him, that keeps him happy and away from my fingerz.

Benny, Thanks for sure, Glad you like him so much. He's actually going over to your part of the globe to a certain box maker who has touched us all I think?
Happyhappy

Conga, Thanks man, they just keep jumpin' up to my bench and expecting me to fix'em up Next up is the other tusk similar to this one and then another one and a Other nother one and a Maori bonehead and who knows, they just keep showin' up. I got a feeling you are behind all this?

LAOJAI, I've been waiting for you, I think I'll be needing your mailing address pretty soon sir. We don't want you running out of drool now do we?


Thanks Amy, And Don't be looking him in the eye too long, Tiki Mango knows that too. Glad you likee!


Thanks everyone I appreciate All the comments. Really givess me inspiration!

Ben -

I'm bedazzled and bewitched with these tusks, man!

As a rock hound, I absolutely love the malachite eyes. Malachite, with its banding, is one of lapidary's most beautiful delights isn't it? Farewell broken ashtray ((G salutes)) - make way for those MYSTIC EYES!! Keep that malachite handy for future projects, its really a beautiful touch.

One last comment..Your swirly parallel grooves I see in many of your pieces are undeniably trademarks of your work. In my mind I associate this feature with human
fingerprint 'epidermal ridges' and thus give your works a trippy dichotomy for me: The human spirit mirrored with an ethereal God given life-force.

Carve on Ben! Thanks!
