I really dig this piece. I have been wranglin' with my wood source for a log with the rootball on it. I like the flames. Some multiple orange/yellowish stain would be cool if done corectly. Very neat as always. Ruler!

So on Mother's Day (about 6 weeks ago) I go out to check out my pond and I see thousands of tadpoles only about 1/8" long just a swimmin around. Tiny little things. Today I amble out and find tiny toads no bigger than my thumbnail hopping this way and that. Cutest darn things you ever saw. The Tiki Gods have blessed my backyard with healthy habitat. WOOT! Just 2 weeks after I saw the tadpoles I saw a red-eared slider turtle swimmin' around. Three weeks later I saw him again sticking his head up for air. I caught it and it has a beautiful shell (about the width of a golf ball) almost neon green laced with yellow. WOOT again! Good thing the pet gator is only made of fiberglass eh?
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Here's my latest, just a tad short of 5 ft. tall. As some of you know, the most prominent feature on a Moai is the nose. I started out carving away the wood on the forehead, but then I knew the features would not balance out so I switched to carving the nose deep into the cylinder shaped log of still green palmwood. Looks simple but it isn't. A lot of wood has to be removed. I think it took approximately 8 hours to get to this point. Carve on!

Very impressive JT!

Perfect log for a moai, nice and wide! And the nose looks perfect.

Nice work!

Thanks Dollar (real NAME!). Thanks also to Lizard, (not real name), Lake, UB, Matt, (as soon as I find a model for this one I'll post her), Spermy, seeksurf, and Grog (brother in the jungle).
Here's more creations from the hands of Jungle.
Yah the Moai is about 5 ft and you'll notice he has a beauty spot on his left cheek and no ears, (Van Gogh Mo). How many people do you know with beauty spots on their left cheek?
The latest waterscape is done and the customer is elated. I was gonna include a tiki with the pond and stream but he wanted a koi instead. I got tronchoteric burrcitis (sp?) from digging this one, (clay and rock soil) but I'm recovering quickly, just a litle hitch in my get-along. Jungle stand tall again tomorrow.
