in the last few days I tried out to carve new finer forms and so I started to create a Tiki god with a bloom crown. I use to apply some marquesan parts.
I´m not sure, but I think the 3.28 foot log is from cottonwood.
It´s very soft and easy to carve.
For the first, I finished with the basic form of the crown, the eyes and the nose.
Sadly, I have done a little disfigurement, because I think the eyes could be bigger. There is a little bit to much space between eyes and nose.
Whatever, now I will go outside and create the mouth in proper style.
After carving the Tiki I consider to dye it with some different natural colors.
So, see you later on TC, if I have some new pictures for you.
