I was inspired by this foamy post to do a 2-foot AAC moai for the bar area of a friend of mine...

I get it now. The connection between fez/Shriner/tiki... these guys were found in line, like they were facing a bar. The wooden bars deteriorated ages ago and the early explorers pinched the glasses.





Originally i was going to carve him so that a martini glass would fit in his hand, but it didn't work out that way, so here he is... thanks anyway, foamy, for the inspiration!







i took him with me to Benzart's place last week for some critiquing, and Benz gave me some pointers, so i ended up tweaking the hands abit, based on his comments.. I teased him as best I could, Ben!









Thanks for lookin' !

Hey, you know what, PT? That's way cool. I like the whole look of the thing, the texture, the form and you even lit it nicely for the photographs. Nice work man. Your buddy's a lucky fella. You're a talented sculptor. I'd like to see more.

Thanks foamy, you were my inspiration! my wife is the photography director; she makes sure the lighting and backdrop are correct.

i'm making another one for my buddy that's going outside amongst his tropical plants, but that's just a 2 foot head, not a full-body. i'll post pics when he's finished.

Thanks congatiki... i'm glad you like the fingers. i originally had them more or less engraved into the belly, but Benz suggested that i lower the belly area and bring out the fingers more, so i started shaving away the concrete to give the hands more dimension.
