That slit gong rocks, JP. (as does all your stuff) Funny thing-a month or so ago I was doing a google image search for something? unrelated to slit gongs but ran across a pic of one, became fascinated and began scouring the web for images of slit gongs so now I have a nice inspiration folder fulla them suckas!
Keep up the goodness-I'll be checking back....

Tikigap and Congatiki, the mistakes were in the form of the Vanuatu slit gong. I rounded the drum body to the head too low and I messed up on the nose a bit. Good things to know since the next one needs be great. Conga, if you use a drum in one of your jam sessions and record it you can come get one. I'd be happy to have one with somebody who could actually play it, instead of just banging on it like I do.

Thanks Bete

Hodadhank That tiki of mine got a tan yet? Is he still waving to tourists?

Surf-n-turf I've scrounged for a lot of drum or garmut pictures also. It is surprising how few pictures of them there are on the net. Interestingly though, on of my New Guinea figures (not a drum) shows up on a image search for "slit gong".

Gman here izza update. Didn't work on the drum today but did get some time on the croc prow. I hollowed out behind the teeth and carved the detail into the croc body and added the figure at the back. I mostly finished the "scales" on the croc head, except for around the face at the noze. This is taking a lot longer than I ever thought it would.





Thanks for looking

JP

Now thatz what I was waiting for! Damn, that is wicked! I love how you did the teeth on the prow. I bet that is taking longer than you thought...I bet it will take lots more time too. I shudder when I think of sanding that beast. Gads! That has to be one of the most intense pieces I've seen you post. Congrats on a truly killer piece. Wow!

The canoe prow is just nuts...you got a little "Sepik" blood in you Johnny? That's the only
way I could explain-away the skill and vision you are showing in this piece. Great.
