I don't know how you do it. I tried carving small stuff and I am so not-exact. I'm impressed.

Aloha Bruddah BK!
Shootz brah! Your bone work is really amazing! Youve taken to the craft like youve been doing it for years cuz! And all your Marquesan carvings are so perfect, I bet the archaeologists would have a hard time telling the difference between yours and the kahiko carvings!

Have you seen the Marquesan style ear plugs? With all the "tribal" kooks out there now with big plugs in their ears, you could do very well at making da kine for the "Tattoo/piercing" market!

No ka oi brah...NO KA OI!

Malama Pono!

That's a great idea, B.F.A.M.! I'm waiting on a re-stock on cowbone which I need to get bought and ground flat for some more projects. I still have some stuff to send you, too!.

what sort of tools are you using to manipulate the marble?

your ability to migrate between mediums is really amazing.

nicely done

The traditional carving work of Basement Kahuna is incredible. I really appreciate you posting your pix because they are so inspiring. As a new member to TC, I did a intro on the general info forum last week and have been checking out the mountain of info in all the different forums since.

As a carver, I am always looking for books of traditional oceanic works. Any books that anybody would like to recommend? I have the following books: Hawaiian Sculpture, The Book of Tiki, The Pacific Islands, Ancient Hawaii, Polynesian and Oceanic Design, Shag book, and some tribal tatoo design books. I am interested in traditional oceanic weapons. design patterns. storyboards. etc., etc. Any book recomendations would be greatly appreciated!

Mahalo,
Beachnik

Hi, Beachnik...thanks for the comps! It means a lot to hear those things...it's the best reward. I've always recommended Anthony J.P. Meyer's "Oceanic Art". There's also "Decorative Arts of the New Zealand Maori", Fergus Clunie's "Fijian Weapons And Warfare", "Adorning The World-Art Of The Marquesas", etc... If you do a book search on Amazon for "Oceanic Art" several titles should come up. There are probably more books on Maori art than anything else. I'll PM you with a few more I have when I get a breather..I've been sort of covered up with tasks. If you're just starting I'd tell you the Malcolm X-Nike-Ford-Schmaltz rule... "By any means necessary", "Just Do It", "Quality is Job One", and "Patience is the tiki carver's greatest attribute"..(and Leroy Scmaltz is YODA". Good luck... Alohaaaaa!

Many mahalos for the book titles! It makes a ton of sense to understand the meanings behind traditional works... I don't need any more evil spirits cruising my back yard than I already have!

Cheers,
Beachnik

Many of those book titles are great to have as a reference for sure. I was reading "Adorning the World Art of the Marquesas Islands" last night. I was not to familiar with all of the bone ornaments of the Marquesas. Man, after reading and really looking at the pictures, I was blown away by your your latest works. I'd love to see you try something like the ear spools on pg. 77-79 Figs. 43-48. The amount of detail you have incorporated is fantastic. Cheers on a great job.
