as soon as I sell enough tikis to get me there.Thanks Gecko. I'm also working on your piece. The Koa is a really beautiful wood but you have to really Work hard to get the image out of it. It's a relatively Hard wood. Look at me tellin YOU About Koa. I'll shut up.
I think I have decided to do a Life sized Maori Chief from the Pine log I have.

Here is the Latest and probably Last Update on the 12" Moai for Dogbytes.




He still needs a lot of clean-up and a little teasing here and there. He has the first coat of sanding sealer to keep the dirty finger prints off.
He should be done by Thursday I think.
Thanks to Tikifrog for the closeup pic's of his moai

Great work Ben. I am oddly drawn to the fingers at the bottom - I just like them. I definitely love the back. Keep posting and keep carving.

Thanks Dogbytes,hisBack Side is peeknig through.I also wanted the sealer on so you could see the color of the wood.
Thanks Octane,I've never carved the back, Nor the body on any Moai I have previously done. I didn't know they carved the back. I never paid much attention to them for some reason. I promise I have a newly found respect for those carvers. The delicate way they make it look so simple. The delicate Hands so long and pointed and thin. and then to go and put the Birdmen, Paddles and who knows whatelse on the backside!!!!(sorry I couldn't contain myself!!)
SallyandJay, thanks for the comps. I loved the way they place those long thin fingers around the belly like that too. I tried to capture the feeling I got when I saw the hands. Thanks.
TNTiki, thank you.this guy will be shipped regular mail. He's not too heavy, There are lots of shipping methods to get ont to you from anywhere.
I guess I'll say Nite nite now
