Carving like crazy for all the big events this summer, but also been pouring through books for new Oceanic pieces.

I like carving pieces I have done before, but I'm always on the lookout for new things.

Here's something off the beaten path... A mask inspired by the works of the Yangoru Boiken of East Sepik, Papau New Guinea.

27" H x 11.5" W

A bunch of time invested already and it's far from done... Lots of painting yet to do.

Thanks Grog!

See you at the June International Tiki Market Place at Don the Beachcomber?

I'll be vending again!


Andy, thanks a bunch for the compliments! Nice to see all the tiki carving going on here these days.

I'll try and stop by a bit more often... Summers are usually crazy busy for me.


Will, thanks for your kind compliments! Out of all the PNG work I've done the last few years, this piece is just so different from everything else. I'm really looking forward to painting this. After all the tedious and cautious carving its nice to kick back and relax with the brushes.

Grog... I always knew you were dangerous around Photoshop.

I was thinking more in the line of earth tones for this piece though... But I could try and market it to Party City...

See you soon my friend!

Anthony... Thanks for the compliment! Not ready for the dayglo pallet though.

Hang10... Thank you!

Whoa! That's awesome. looks like a wide grain conifer which makes it even more impressive since it's easier to crack & split.

I think Grog got that color scheme from this thread:

This piece really shows off your incredible skills Lake!
