Aloha guys,

Thank you all for your nice entries.
Im happy about, you enjoy my last entry works.

Paipo, your story is crazy!
To eat fast food in the south sea is not a realy romantic.
I think like you, its the same thing all over the world.
"People always want what they can't get!"

Myself, I life in Bavaria with mountains, grasslands, beer gardens....
but Im dreaming to visit the sea side and the exotic islands.
One of the important thing of the Tiki culture. To dream about something what you can't get.
But not KFC on the Cook Islands!

Lake Surfer, I dont know it exactly,
but I think the Lonos weight is about 80 kg (176 pound). Cottonwood isnt very heavy, but I think its enough.

benella, thanks for the museum link. If Ill visit Paris one time, Ill visit the "Muse du quai branly ".
Come on, please post your Moai pictures on TC.
Everybody starts small, like myself. Anybody can by perfekt on his first piece.
Look always out for interesting carving pictures.
Start to copy easy figures and get the right felling for forms, tools and materials.
Than try to create some own forms and combine them.
Try it again and again and again and youll see, youll catch me quickly.

Tamapoutini, you are right! Time, effort , heart, blood, sweat and tears are enough causes to be complimentary.
I admire all artists, witch start to create something and realize their own ideas. On this time, hats off!
And after that we can discuss about the artworks. What is felicitous and what could me make better.

surfintiki, I dont know for what Ill use the crocodile wood yet?
Perhaps, for a pendant??? To carve something, where I dont loose the interesting bark would be nice.
This time I dont have an idea.

Mahalo to all!

Hallo Hai Kai,

Thanks for your encouragements and for regularly sharing your fabulous work.
What did happen to the tiki you were carving on the beach of Brigognan in France who seemed to start very well?

I'll share picts of my moai in progress tomorrow if i have the time because i have a lot of work this time (i am a podiatrist or Fussartzt oder Fussdoktor !)

Tschss

Aloha again,

sorry, for the wrong link! I pushed the wrong bottom.

O:K. Here I have some new pictures for you guys.
These are the last pictures from the big Lono, when we fixed him in Michaels flat.
To lift the 80 kg (176 pound) Tiki into 2 meter height, was a little bit stressfully. But look yourthelf!





I was very glad about, that my brother and Michael helped me to fix the fat guy.
Puuuu, and finally the Lono is finshed!



Greetings and have a nice week, haikai

incredible! I can't believe you hung it up. From the one picture it looks like he's leaning out of the wall, like the rest of him is just hiding on the other side.

Beautiful! The extra carved piece really helps anchor it visually. Speaking of anchoring, how on earth did you attach it to the wall?

Aloha friends,

Im back again. First thanks to AlohaStation, mieko, Paipo and tiki5-0 for their entries.
Thank you all very much!

Paipo, I fixed the Lono behind his chin with a stainless steel angle
and his top with a steel wire and a rake in the ceiling.
You can see the angle on page 10.

Here you can see my work of the last two days.
I started to carve this Tiki for an Austrian guy.
He wants to get a Tiki witch looks like an older one of mine.
So I started to create the figure,
but I couldn`t clone the form. I had so many new idears,
that I must figured out some new forms.
Now, I hope the Austrian guy will also enjoy this spiky Tiki.
I will finsh him in the coming week. The Tiki will get a dark color.

Here is the new Tiki:

















Have a nice weekend, HaiKai

Oh my God!
Ach mein Gott!

You've got a really wonderful style.

3 questions: How did you find the center of your log ?
What happens to the tiki you were carving on the beach of Brigognan in France ?
Where have you learned French this way ? you speak very well, man.

Thanks for sharing your pics.

Ben

Haikai, this looks like Another Masterpiece in the making. The heaaddress is very unique and I can't wait to see how you finish it. I have no doubt it will be every bit as beautiful as your last one, the Lono. The Lono finished up Perfectly with the added breast piece giving it bit of anchoring it needed.
Beautiful work, just Beautiful.

Haikai,

Wow!! I missed the hanging & chestpiece of your Lono. It looks incredible all lit up like that. You deserve that beer!!

And the next one... Oh my God! You just start from the top & work your way down, I dont think Ive ever seen someone approach a work quite like that... Most seem to apply the roughout touch evenly over a piece.

If I was wearing a hat I would take it off to you right now... RE-SPECT!

Keep it up. You have our attention.

TamaTheTerribly-Impressed!
