That beast is screamin'! What a score on the wood too, beautiful coloring, just perfect.
As usual, fabulous creativity there.

F**KING OUTSTANDING! Where on gods green Earth did you procure a monster log like that?! And how much would it cost to Fed Ex me one?

Raising the bar really high there Marcus. That's beautiful work. Serious milestone work there.

I love that fact that it is hardwood too. There's some nice big palm tikis out there but the colors and grain of hardwood really add a lot to it.

What were the hours on this beauty if you don't mind me asking? I could never put a price on something like this. Its pure love.

You've arrived man... not that your early stuff wasn't great... but this.... wow.

WoW!!! You have the traditional thing down and now you've turned out a flawless "pop" tiki as well, the size makes my jaw drop!!!! Phenomenal!

Big thanks to Notch, Tiki Diablo, Bowana, Tikifreak1, Robin, JohnnyP, Gman Sneakytiki, McTiki and Seeksurf.
Lakesurfer thanks to you to - it was about 3 months work - 2 full time.
TBirdman - maybe shipping would be better for one as big as this fella thanks.
Surfintiki - I started on him before my trip to Hawaii but had to carve like a man possessed on my return home to get him finished in time for the exhibit.
Hewey "And, er, whats the plan for the big log in the upper right?" to answer this question - it will be a maori for Ocean and EArth when I get a chance to start on him.

Here is a pic of my current tikimobile taken by my mate Pix by Pete

Truely Awesome tiki Marcus, you never cease to amaze me with your offerings. How fortunate you are to be able to find and carve such great logs. Can't wait for the next log to be uncovered.

hey marcus
super super job on the ginormo tiki - absolutely jaw dropping. the pic with the val really puts it in perspective (and makes me miss my coupe!). spewing that after coming back to Australia and driving down the coast that I missed seeing the exhibition by just a few days!!
take it easy and look after yourself so you can keep wowing everyone here on TC and educating all the "others" through exhibitions like those at Currumbin.
cheers.
