It has to be self supported, and maybe slightly smaller.
Only slightly though

Woah! That's awesome 8'!
That bowl has a wayy better volcano that the one in my dream, but the colour is almost identical! Same shade, and the moai are almost the exact same size!

I would say that is more the bowl of my dreams, and almost the bowl in my dreams!

TW what great ideas! Putting the hat on the solar lights will save them from losing color in the sun and gives them a great Oriental look!

Hey Motiki! Thanks!

The hat is unfortunately only evening attire.

Beneath it is the solar panel that gathers energy during the day, however he does look rather smart in it.

Earlier this year I had an idea for a lit address sign. Made from metal, it would have cutouts with frosted glass behind, then lit from within. The part on the top is supposed to be flames. I think photoshop screwed them up or something, they hardly look like flames in this picture, but you get the idea.

My husband said that it's too crazy looking(our house has a sort of english cottage look to the front of it), and it would have to be huge for the numbers to be big enough. I didn't quite understand what his point was.

He suggested that I have someone make me some little guys like this, as garden lights, and thus the solar powered tiki idea came about. I would still love to have one or more of these made from a cylinder of metal, without the numbers of course.

When the 5 palm trees I planted out front get bigger, he might just change his mind.

I drew this guy one day, I was thinking that there aren't nearly enough moku sporting tikis. He's very simple, but I thought I'd share anyhow.

Cool! I'd recommend redoing the entire front of the house to match your sign.

Youve been holding out on us. The metal tiki sign is a great idea.. Now when hubby is away just convert the front of the house . He cant make you change it back once its done.

I have another light related project I forgot all about!
Last year for the Hukilau I made a pufferfish necklace.
It was hard getting him to swallow the tiny bulb
