Yeah yeah yeah I know it's not "traditional" Tiki by any sense of the word Tiki, so no flaming me. My Wahine wanted a Mermaid carved out of this log. I think it turned out rad if I do say so myself. Happy Independence day !

Sweet! Looks awesome McTiki. I personally had an up close and personal view of this mermaid coming to life. Trish and I spent a little time down in Merrit Island with the McTiki's last weekend. I hacked on a little project while Mr. McTiki worked on this. Hot as hell, but the pool and killer outdoor tiki bar helped alot;) I think my little tiki felt right at home as we left him behind to join the company of all his other new tiki friends.

Props bro', the place looks awesome and so does the Mermaid.

Thank you all for the props! I was hesitant to post this due to the perceptions of what is and what is not Tiki. I have to give credit to the designer of the Tiki Farm (Tiki Godess) mug, that inspired feminenity to the profiles of her face. I will return to more traditional and original carvings now (unless I get an order of course lol) I have to thank Tiki G (who was supervising) for elaborating on the post as I was going to remian humble. I love this ohana!

Nice mermaid, you pulled off the combination tiki and mermaid very well. It must be great to have a TikiG piece. Your bar turned out wonderful and I've enjoyed the postings as you posted progress pics.

Thanks JP. That means alot. Yes, having an original Tiki G is awesome.
Here's how she looks today. A few more details and she's done up nice. Yes, those are coconut shell halves over her appendages. lol Need shells for the string that hold em up.
