Haven’t carved a tiki in a while now. I did this little marq just to knock the dust off. 6 inches tall.





Mostly experimenting with different techniques for adding hair to my army of bald, freaky folk art figures.



Started to rough one out…this one is a bit larger.

It never fails to improve my day when Amate puts up some new work.

Thank you Greg and Hilda. I really appreciate your support! You have both done you part to keep me in supplies!
Will, Cy – always great to hear positive things from the other carvers…especially two of the most original and talented artists on this site.
Even though I’ve had him around for at least a year, I had never gotten around to giving this guy a name (or hair). “Lurch” works….I think that’s going to stick!

Another nice update. You said you "haven't carved a tiki" in a while, soooooo,
what have you been carving, are we missing anything?

Well Conga, I really haven’t been doing much carving at all. . . Lack of inspiration and thus motivation… I started a couple things but they were half-hearted and fell by the wayside. I’ve done some experimenting with polymer clay but other than that just working on the hair project.

Well, I'm experiencing technical difficulties with the finish on that last 20" Moai. So, instead of fixing it, I started working on his big brother. I guess I'll go ahead with a process shot...

Loving the new stuff. So weird you're messing with hair. I had a dream last night about using hair on some of my next carvings. What does that even mean?? Idk but I mean to try it soon. The big Moai is looking excellent love the torso part especially.

So, are you saying I'm weird??? You are correct sir. DING DING DING, we have a winner! HA! just kidding...
I'm not sure what's going on with my sudden obsession with the hair. All I know is that I've been hearing that Cowsills song from the late 60's playing in my head for about 6 months now.

Sooner or later, all my creepy folk art figures will join the hair club for men.

Thanks for the comp on the Moai.

"an island far away to the West and South"
"It is not down in any map; true places never are," H.M.

High Chief King Kumara and the lovely Princess Noa.





On Kumara’s island, it is customary for the men to adorn themselves with facial tattoos. The spalting on this piece of American Elm saved me a lot of carving by providing the moko for me.



Glad you like the heads Hiltiki. I’ve got about a dozen or so now but most are very rough. They are mostly just something to keep my hands busy and use all the small scraps of wood I have lying about. I should have them just about worked out of my system I think.

Flattered by your kind remarks Benz. I am relatively new to TC and even then I often feel I snuck in the back door. I have always been impressed and inspired by your carving. The body of your superb artwork is nothing short of mind boggling. Compliment much appreciated!
