I think it's called a superb fruit dove and it lives in the New Guinea/Australia/Phillipenes area

amybean - I'm diggin on the colors of the plush fairy tern mug...cool mint green awesome goodness

Wendy - tease me please me one step at a time. Can't wait to see how the image evolves into a bird theme

Babalu - Now you've done it, you make me reach for a clean napkin...'scuse me while I wipe the drool off my chin AGAIN

MadDogMike - What's the deal with your submission? Win one get ten free?!? Every one a winner my friend.

Pennjones - I love your multi-element piece a lot, it would look great on any wall. Mrs. Pennjones' painting is vivid psychedelic goodness - yay!

Pennjones, I love the colors - looks like a 70s blacklight painting (I mean that in a good way ) The border and the sculptured elements really make it POP!

Tiki G-Man, My partner will get their choice - should be SOMETHING in there they would like! CHEERS!

PS - thanks for the voting help folks

Cap'n Hornbill settles in for a landing! Done and done!


..and here's the front and back shot

(I added a peking duck on the back because most Tiki locations historically served chinese cuisine - )

Hey, Hewey!
any chance of a progress so far post? I'm dying to see all of this wonderousness and awesome-ocity, but my scrolling hand is over taxed...
(stop laughing, you...)

HORNBILL FACTS - Did you know that the hornbill has a 2-lobed kidney?
(OK, I'm starting to run out of hornbill facts )

I turned off the power tools and listened, the wood spoke it me. It said that it had the heart of a warrior- smooth, clean, and efficient. Not like some ornate 10 dollar hooker. How convenient, since I don't have the woodcarving skills to go all baroque on it
I think the wood for this PNG Bird Head Club is Indian Laurel (Ficus), beautiful color and grain with full gloss spar varnish. The eyes are inlayed grey shell.

The flash is wiping out the depth in the bamboo jungle. Next I'll work on the depth of the foreground. There will be a bird. Wendy
