My latest attempt; a pine Moai. I did this one for my step-mom who wanted something she could put out in her garden, so I went with a large design that could be recognized from a distance. It's about 38 inches tall. It's kinda crude, but effective, I think. I hope she likes it.

Yeah, I dig the thick grain on 'em. He'll keep the spirits away!
Any idea what kind of pine it might be?

Maoi are just the coolest, they don't need all the angry faces and stances to make a statement. Just one cool look that someone thousands of years ago got just right.
Good job Silver.

It has a primitive look that fits a Moai very well...has a bit of a Witco look to me as

I saw this carving in person the other day and it really is cool. He turned a big ol' hunk o pine into a good looking idol don'tcha think!!( I also got to see Silverline's winter carving retreat space he just prepared and I am jealous that he is going to get to carve indoors while I will be shivering out in the cold. BRRRR

As a lark I entered a couple of my carvings into a local juryed art show. I didn't think I'd get selected to be shown with the "highbrow" artists this event attracts, but I was WRONG! They accepted my Catalpa Marq! The opening was tonight. Here are a couple shots of the venue. It's a three month traveling show. Perty cool fer a midwestern tiki-phile/carver!

Well DUH! Look at this Carving you entered, That is one Really Awesome TIKI. The Color is Perfect and it looks like you must have made him a complete Christian, you sanded the Hell out of him. The Detail Is Crisp and Sharp. Good to see you posting work again...

I knew you said this was coming up and I was just wondering the other day if it was going on yet. Glad to see that they do have some good taste here after all!! Thanks for the pics of the event. How is the big oak carving coming ???

Ditto what others have said. This is a wonderful piece & would be a great addition to any collection (I wont even begin to imagine what it would cost to send over here!). Is it kosha to ask what sort of price you have him? Unfortunately Im not asking as a serious purchaser but genuinely interested as a fellow artist as someone with involvement in the running of a local gallery. (please PM if you'd rather)
The other work in the exhibition seems of very high calibre (as is your own) & I am trying to gauge a comparison with Contemporary Maori woodcaving in NZ.

Cheers
Tama

Sorry Tamapoutini, I can't help you there. This one is not for sale; my wife likes it too much (and so do I). And if it were for sale, I really don't have any idea what it might go for here.
