Hey hodadhank, are you living in the paradise? Very nice !!!


Nope, Hodahank lives in a slightly different paradise. He's in Mission Beach and that's Pacific Beach, home of the
Catamaran Hotel & Resort, Da Kine's Plate Lunch and the Chrystal Pier Hotel & Cottages.

Of course Mission Beach has it's own claims to fame, including:



The Giant Dipper Roller Coaster



And the Bahia Hotel & Resort, home of the Bahia Belle sternwheeler.

Hey freddiefreelance, thank you for the nice photos! I think it´s also a perfect place to lie on the beach and carve outside the door, when the sun is shining. I would prefer beeing on one of those locations.
This time it´s still cold in Bavaria and when you carve, the knife will freezing on your fingers.
It´s between 0 C and -16 C cold and everywhere is snow, snow, snow!
I love the wintertime, but not so long.

The pictures of the Catamaran Hotel looks very interesting, with all his figures and plants.
I hope that I´ll can visit it anytime.


Aloha Benzart, thank you, tank you! I think it´s a honor for me, to hear those words from you.
Sometimes, it´s funny to create which other materials than wood, but I will remain true to it.
The Aku Aku bowl was the result, when I was tinker with my girlfriend´s little son.
He created his own 007 James Bond doorplate and I made pottery the bowl.

Mahalo, Kai

It’s happening! Our Homepage is finished and we like to introduce you to www.forbidden-paradise.com!

This site is meant to be a platform for artists and those who are interested in culture and lifestyle.
The main topics are Tiki and Oceanian culture as well as Polynesian Pop Art.

We offer you to purchase handcrafted Tiki stuff from our shop area.
We offer: Graven Tikis, illustrations, pictures and various decoration stuff.
All figures are unique and we strictly refuse massproduction, because this way our products

Aloha!

Here, I have a few new pictures for you. In the first photo you can see Mogambos finished Tiki pandant.
Now the little fellow has a new owner and I hope he will post a photo along with him.
I hope, that I can eventually show you my pendant serial in the next days.



Last week, I carved my second keyring pendant. It was also an old broomstick, befor it become a Tiki.
The wood has been embedded with teak glaze and then sealed up with oak coloured beeswax.
Next month, I´ll also want to start a little keyring pandant serial.
I´ll keep it posted!



These next two pictures shows you my second tiki candle. I carved it yesterday and
it´s so great to carve in wax.
Today, when I took the pictures, I got an idea. It would be funny to use the candle form, for a Tiki ice.
It would be perfect! A place in the sun at the beach bar and you can enjoy your own Aku Aku ice.
Certainly with Mai Tai flavour!




Mahalo, haikai

Aloha Tiki friends,

I have some new pictures for you! Here you can see my work of the last two weeks.
I carved 4 giant Tikis out of spruce and oak wood.
They are all between 78.74 inch and 98,43 inch high.

From 03.June to the 03.September in Landshut you can gaze a little exotic paradise.
At the Mühleninsel you will find a Beachbar, the LA ISLAND, with 150t of sand,
real palms and the four Tikis.
Maybe somebody stay in this time in Germany,
so travel to Landshut and have exotic nights in the middle of a nice city.



This is the first spruce Tiki. The log was cut down 2 years ago and very easy to handle!







For the second spruce Tiki I used an easter island model.





These next 2 figures was my first try with oak wood. First I was shocked,
about the hardness and weight, but after trying out some different tools it became better.
I think it´s perfekt for carving ornaments!







For the finsh I used rape oil to protect the wood. The last figure got diamond eyes and a cavity behind his nose.

Great tikis!
You are very talented with that chainsaw.
You make it look easy, I have yet to pick mine up, it scares me half to death!

I really like the moai-sickle picture, with you licking the candle. That's hilarious!
