Tikigap,
Hello! I'm a newbie here and saw your post!Besides makin' art I also read alot and have a lotta reference books.I feel it's part of the territory to know a little bit about what you're going to paint and draw.One of the earliest examples of a tiki with ears is a squatting figure from the Solomon Islands in stone,I also know of stuff from New Guinea(lots of ears-they loved ears!)Tonga,Rurutu (not sure where in Oceana this is),New Zealand,and New Ireland(see their "Malanggan" carvings)So, besides the "Long eared Nobles" these are a few.(BTW there were long-eared aristocratic castes among the Incas and Solomon Islands)

Chisel Slinger-In answer to when Tikis get wood....That would probably be before they get
leid (groan!)

That was FUNNY!

Speaking of wood, we were driving back to the shop a few weeks ago with a truck load of palm trunks and some kids rode by on bikes...one of them looked over and said to his friend, "They got wood. Huh huh." It was totally Beavis and Butthead...from a 12 year old. Me and my buddy almost fell out of the truck laughing.
