Here's the other 2-foot Moai that I made for my buddy; this guy's going outside, so i did a two-tone gray paint scheme on him to give added weather protection, and i wanted to try something alittle different. the pukao is a fleckstone gray, and the rest is layers of charcoal gray and black.

hewey, is this what you had in mind?

Benz, this is the guy that was giving me fits...





the lighting is abit off on this one...

Sweet Palama! I love it.

I was getting at more a traditional styled moai, with the head bit in red. Just like the original ones. (I will call it mini maoi!)

This ones cool as is though dude

Palama Tiki, you are fast becoming the Moai Master. This one looks SO Good that a lot of us will be afraid to do moai any more. You have those subtle moves down pat. He looks so clean and natural. The RapaNui' would be very proud, or maybe very jealous.
Keep it up.

Palm, you have mastered the Moai from every angle. It it just me, or does that last one look a bit like Hugh Grant?

hey polynesiac... thanks.. i have a 'style'?
yes, the moai are available for purchase. PM me if you are interested. thanks!

A-A: thanks. as a matter of fact, Hugh was in-between pictures, so he agreed to sit and model for me. but after awhile, the 150# rock i had on his head started to crush his skull.... wimp! so i sent him packin'.
