Aside from how great this guy looks, with his lovely dark patina, this made me chuckle :

Thanks, Clarita. Here is a recently completed Maori pendant. Needs some minor contour work and perfecting and another polish. A storage house image with three Manaia.

Superb! Great detail and a nice 'nicotine stained ivory' kinda patina to it. How large (or small) is it?

BK that Manaia is drop mouth gorgeous! The multi-imagery in detail is absolutely awesome! I suspect a full Maori house panel in scale miniature, soon to be the size of a postage stamp??!! Keep on chislen chisler!

P.S. the previous two images as well as a Marquesan piece I am working on in my down time will all be part of a limited run resin cast from Gecko's South Seas Arts. Should be in production by Christmas, available through me and on the Gecko website. 60 of each will be made.

Ben, on Ngorieru-I'll give you the book title where I found clear record on these images...The originals are generally less fluid as they were 1-d thousand-year-old rock petroglyphs so you kind of have to interpret the proportion differently for a 3-d carved piece. As soon as I can get back to the shop tomorrow I'll find it for you. It's full of incredible Solomons stuff.
