I can't get over that 12" moai Benzart. You've definitely brought your own style to the piece, and the expressive quality of the face and hands is most excellent. His inscrutable gaze connects him firmly to the proud Moai carving tradition.

Thanks Makemake, I'm honored by your words.
Here are a few I finished up that have been hanging around for awhile. Hopefully they ar going to Hukilau.







This guy looks like Ivory for some reason. It is Cherry with a light mahogany stain.





Well thats all for now. Enjoy
here is the last one. The same Macasser Ebony (I think) thai I made the Small Moai # 27.






Now to finish a few Shrunken Heads and a Gecko piece.

No I didn't forget about TikiToa. I have to start from scratch again tho, the beautiful pine Checked right Openwith the basic shape chopped out. I will find a better hunk of wood on e-bay, either Mahogany or Walnut, depending on which one I win....Yours will not be ready till HukiLau though, si I have plenty time.

my list is as follows:
Gecko-Lono
OnaTiki-Shrunken Head
Tiki-Toa Maori/Cannibal combo 12" to 18"
SwampFire-Shrunken Head
Mutanttiki- Mutanttiki 12"-18"
DawnTiki- Shrunken head???maybe
TNTiki- Moai 12"
Chongolio- Shrunken Head
Hiltiki- 2" Moai Macasser Ebony.
Jungle Trader BIG Maori for HukiLau

If your name is Not on the list and it Should be, Let Me Know..
I have been clearing up carvings that I started some time ago, getting them out of the way so I will have some pieces to put away for HukiLau. We cannot go thee empty handed.. If you would like to Order a carving for Hukilau let me know and your name will be on the list too.

Thanks for your patience guys 'n Gals.Each piece I do is better and better,ah hell they're All pretty good. I'm on a ROLL.
Also in the future I need to have a small price increase.
Thanks again

The Tangaroa is done. The Black wood is very difficult to photo. It has some dark brown strips running thru it which you can barely see.He is 2 3/4" tall and is # 39.



Here is the Next Shrunken Head. He needs a few more coats of lacquer and some Stitches then some hair and he's done.


I am giving him stitches where they removed his skull on the back of his head.



Thats all for now.

Ben it is so hard to believe looking at your work every day that you have not been doing this type of carving since birth. I look so forward every day to see what new things you have done and posted.

Hey Ben, I would like to get on the list for one of them shrunken heads, Those ugly muthas are the next best thing to the real deal! The expressions and detail knocks the socks.

Ben- That's one ugly cat! Your shrunken heads are classic! I love 'em!

The "ivory"-looking piece above is beautiful! I somehow missed that one this week.
