Those photos were a challenge because the wind was blowing over 20 knots. You might notice the blurred leaves on the morning glory vine. The Maori simply would not stand up in the wind so that's why he is lying down in the sand.

This one is coming along but I'm stuck on what to do with the hat.



I finally got some stain on this next guy.







I've got a couple more under way but want to make a bit more progress before I show them.

Looks like a Fez hat of the Shriner's Freemasons. Maybe inlay a Freemason's logo/emblem out of bone or fossil ivory & sell it to some master mason as a Freemason's tiki. Hope I didn't offend any Freemason members if there are any here on TC.

coconuttzo - The headdress I had in mind didn't work out because of two knots on either side of the head that weren't cooperating. So, I'm having to improvise. I see what you mean by the fez though. I'll probably stick with something a little more traditional though. At least my version of traditional.

Benzart - I suppose it is possible that you have seen this guy. He has been grounded several times for sneaking out at night and he might be back to his old tricks.

Here's a couple of things I've been working on. I have seen dozens of this style here on TC so I guess it's time for me to try one. Just need to add the details.



The next one has been abandoned in the closet for a couple of years now. I made some progress on it last week.



I also started this 6 ft. tall PNG inspired ancestor figure.

Yeah, I love your inspirations, more of the soul-ful artistic side of tiki carving. That's good stuff!
