Yo BK - how much time did you put into a thing like this club? Really nice man... really nice. It appears to be true to the culture too. How do you know? How does anyone know?

Where's the provenance? I'm not sure what I'm talking about... but it sure is interesting. Thanks!

Thanks all...Ken Pleasant is a Jedi. Gap, The way I carve it takes a while sometimes, mainly because I am subject to the weather here and have to do it outside (Jan. and Feb. in the south cold and rainy!). So I get a couple of hours here, a couple there. For clubs like this I use whatever reference books I can find. I had a copy of an old Cyrillic engraving showing side views of this club, which helps, as they are almost never pictured from the side. As for the cultural aspect, the majority of these have some degree of old documentation that explains their purpose to us. A lot of books on Oceanic art are out there floating around Amazon or E-bay. Conga, I'll be bringing an unfinished Sali to Coontiki and demonstrating some aging and torch tricks in the first part of my three hours Sunday. But remember these are trade secrets! What happens at Coontiki stays at Coontiki. I plan on learning a few things from our resident giant among carvers Ben Davis (You da man, Ben!) and wildman Chiki Danny!

As a weapon, if I had to be hit in the head with something, I guess I would want to be hit in the head with this beautiful staff. You would get to see detailed views of the tiki inspired eyes just before you blackout. Nice!

BK, any chance you'll bring that (or any of your other recent pieces) to CoonTiki? I'd really love to see it in 3-D. I'm pretty sure I ought be sitting down when you show it, though. Absolutely AMAZING!

Here is a Marquesan bone hair ornament I just finished also for Virani, as seen in the recent Metropolitan Museum book "Adorning The World-Art Of The Marquesas".
