First here is the link to the Old Benzarts Carvings pages http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=7531&forum=7&729

Here is # 62 about 1/2 done. The wood is a beautiful piece of Curly Maple from Polynesiac.
It is 4" X 2" X 1/2" thick.

What can be said that has not been said before.
Glad to see you back at Ben. I look forward to seeing this come together.

Is that a tattooed tongue? Either way I like it. Your adaptation of different styles is impressive.

this piece is simply beautiful. I love the swirls and the shape of the carving. It's going to make a beautiful pendant!

I'm glad that you like the wood, it's great fun to watch you spin your magic on a lump of wood!

That looks great from the start, Ben - even with pencil marks on it - then just gets better. How do you do that?

Thanks again everyone,
aaron I'll try not to let this thread get so large.
Sam I don't know how I do it, it just happens. The swirls all fit together and eminate from the center and are all connected.
Raffer, yes that is a tongue and doesn't it just bring tears to your eyes watching all those swirls get sliced and cut into place? Here is a Taiaha done by Basement Kahuna awhile back..
His is very authentic looking right down to the feathers. I just decided to find a way to wear one.
Thanks everyone.

Here is the latest on this Taiaha pendant. Almost all done. It just needs a lot of clean-up and a finish. Stain or no stain.





Enjoy

There's so much more detail after being carved than your pencil lines described- really nice piece.

Ben-
The Taiaha pendant is Simply Amazing. I love the swirls and all of the detail. I've got one question. Have you ever made a ugly piece?? Your work just blows me away!!!
Take Care,
Scott
