WOW Digger, More great work, love the water scape but unhappy to hear about the joint pain(hanging around the wrong joints recently lol ). Your Moai is an Excellent example of how to do him right and had you not mentioned it we would have not even noticed he was deaf with no ears. It is amazing after even doing many Moai how you can begin another one and have their complex simplicity sneak up on you and shake their finger at you for taking them for granted. Those Ancient Moai Love to do that sort of thing, be Proud they visited you instead of letting you blindly blunder through it.
Great to see more of your stuff!
Here's another one

Wanna see More, check out JT's Website and see why I call him Digger!

HERE, Check it OUT

Thanks Mr. Wizard!! Complicated simplicity, that's a Moai.

Here's another image of the koi pond, and waterfall. The stream starts at the top right in this shot. This will look 10 times better in a few years when the plants and trees have matured and "naturalized". There is a water lily at the bottom of the pond that is dormant right now. This spring it will be flush with new green pads and flowers at the top of the pond. I had 3 large moss rocks lowered in and placed with a crane, you can see 2 of them.
Thanks for looking!

Vic, you do beautiful work... both you wood carvings and your waterscapes.

I am envious of the one talent, for I have tried over the last couple of years to create a realistic pond and waterfall setting.

It is an art to recreate what nature does so "naturally" and you are excellent at it.

Thanks seek, one of these daze we'll meet.
Here's another Moai, this one has a sort of Clint Eastwood grimace. "Go ahead make my day!"

Ahh, Benzart I don't think I'll be making Huki this year. When you coming to Forbidden Island? That would be an event.

keigs, you might be a little tipsy, there's no skeleton. When you coming down to F.I.?

I'm watching the PBR right now. Bullriders like Tater Porter, Ryan Dirteater (real name) and Howdy Cloud. I kid you not. These guys are tuff.
ALOHA! And Shit Howdy!!!

big daddy those Moai's are about 5 ft. tall.

Streams are easy to do. Dig the stream area deeper than you think you should and maybe bring in a little extra soil for the top part of it to ensure a gradual decline to the reservoir or pond. The length of the stream determines the size of the pump. Always use a bigger pump than you think you need, if it's too big you can always install a T and a couple ball valves as a diversion. A filter is a good idea as well, especially if the stream is in full sun. I use 45 mil rubber liner, supposedly lasts 40 years.
Hope this helps.
