He is #21.
Sorry I was unable to finish other pieces before surgery tomorrow, but I'm sure when I get back I'll be better yet.Thanks

Ben, that's great!! Hope you are recovering fully and quickly, thanks so much!

What a cute little guy. Hardly fearsome but is that his dinner he's holding or a baby Sneaky?

BTW, the check IS in the mail.

Thanks Cultjam. I'm not sure what he is holding. It has been described as a Security teddy bear type thing or a Meal. It looks like a bite is already taken outm of it.It could also be a Baby sneeky. I guess thats why its a SneakyTiki.

Ben, as always, these new ones are simply killer. I saw in your shutterfly pics that you've done some wooden indians in your day, too. They are SO COOL, as I'm a cigar store indian freak as well.

Thanks Sam. Yes I have done a few Indians. The 10 foot one I did in New Jersey turned out great for the short 10 days I spent on it. I agonized on what to have the red man holding as I refused to give him the obligatory Cigars or Tomahawk. Finally came up with the Burned Treaty papers.

That is so cool, Ben. Many that you see now do not have the fine detail work. I have a 4' one which was supposedly sold as a souvenir in the western US 30-40 years ago, but who knows... The detail is not nearly as good as yours.

Ben, your carvings are incredable! I wish I had known about you before I sent to hawaii for my other mask. When I move into the next house, I'll be in touch!

Don't get me wrong, I'm completely happy with mine, but this one is just as sweet.

You rock Ben!

Man, did you ever think you would be doing this again? It must be very strange for you.

Keep up the excellent work bro!
