my friends asked me to carve a tiki for them. they own a business called "floor seasons". all the art in their house is four season style, like winter summer spring fall. they want the tiki to have this style. any ideas?

thanks

I would put the seasons on the head or body of the tiki.

Sun on his forehead

Snowflakes on his shoulders

Leaves (autumn) on the sides of his face

Flowers on the thighs or knees

that's a real interesting take. i thought of four different face either on four sides or stacked totem style. using the elements you've described. that sounds like a lot of work, though.

It shouldnt be that hard. These would be shallow embellishments (see a Crazy Al tiki)

Anyway, good luck with whatever you do.
