Hey Ben - what a fine encore piece - I see you're back kicking! I like a good doorknob-head Moai. You've added some expression and personality to his face too. Very nice to see you back carving in such fine form.

Thanks Sam. I actually thought about adding a keyhole to the top of the doorknob. Wasn't sure anyone would catch it though. I might still do it.
Thanks again

Ben, your bar is set so high, one of your average par-for-the-course tikis would be a real achievement for most of us carvers who post here. Glad to see you're back on stride.

Bradddah Benz,
Glad to here you are on the repair.
Those new pieces are dazzlers. The Happy Moai is neat, the lono is looking fearless and you gotta dig the Maori Nick Cage. I have said it before, somebody should tap the celebrity tiki lookalike market.
Very nice,very very nice.
