Bigbro...come on..I got it! When I read that I laughed and said "Well, I haven't made the Tipuna mad yet.." but they know I carve with a deep respect. But I definitely won't smoke a pipe while carving this next one!

BK,

Apparently, all you have to do to keep everyone safe is to remove the tapu from your workspace.

When I was at the Maori Arts & Crafts Institute, I read a sign in the student carving area that explained that the tapu had been removed from the room so that the images of the ancestors could be carved for commercial purposes without anyone being harmed.

I was fascinated by this concept and asked all of the carvers how this was achieved. Everyone was a little dodgy about the details though.

Terrific. Is that fossil? For us newbie carvers, what kind of bits do you use on that? I pulled a couple of roadkill deer leg bones out of a ditch and would like to give carving them a try.

Here is the finished Maori meeting house image. I thought it turned out nice...what do you all think? It looks like a very old piece which was my goal. Each time I tackle a Maori piece I become more and more in awe of the craftsmanship in their carvings and the power of their imagery...it blows me away. I only hope I do them any justice at all. I'm going to put a pic on a regular thread so someone besides us carving nerds can see.

Hey, thanks, Ben...coming from the awesome likes of you it means a lot. I wonder if the Taiahas they use in the Mai Kai show sre yours? Speaking of, here's the pics of the Taiaha I just finished again for this thread:



Again e hoa, your work is no different from a whakairo from home NZ. I've yet to start my Taiaha but I can't wait to get started and show you what I came up w/.

Kia kite ano, Ayden

Thanks, Ayden, and good luck. When carving, passion is everything, and you've got it, so I'm sure it will be a masterwork.

Here is a Manaia I just completed. This is my favorite piece personally that I've done by a longshot. The Manaia is a creature very deeply rooted in the Maori culture...I have been wearing one I purchased from the Maori bone carving guild for a very long time myself...
