Ol' Bulbous Penis turned out great Will! I feel like I'm on the outside of an inside joke though - everyone seems to know the significance of this statue but me. What's the story behind it?

They've got some really cool stuff in the British museum Sven, unfortunately a lot of it's not on display so you can only see it on the website.

I took some pics of some of the stuff on display last time I was there, a few pics here-

theres a cool Moai in the entrance to the room and a new guinea house post as well...

Very awesome carving, Will.

GROG like.

He's not circumcised, though. Chisels got too dull?

Look, GROG want it all.
Thanks to all for the support. Feels good, we all need that.
I worked hard on this.
I've got 120 hrs in it. Took 2 months.
Did I mention it's the hardest wood I've carved yet.
So I'm on to a new carve.
This is the stage where I wonder how in the world I'm ever
going to make this look like anything.
