Bigbrotiki- I like the little scenes, I do stuff like that myself when I'm at home. My desk was mash up of Hawaiian and Blues Brothers stuff.

Hai Kai- Love the scenes, they look great! Wish I could do something like that.

I guess these would fit into this category as well. I may try a diorama at some point.

Mini Tiki Zen Garden
(intervention)




I got a Mini Zen Garden thing as a gift. I am not that much into the Mini Zen Garden thing...
I got a Desktop Mini Moai set of 4 as a gift.

I put them together and KA-BOOM! Tikified! Now it got "soul" or "Aku" to be more precise!

Some time back Sweetpea tossed this oddball bamboo thingamajig (kinda looked like a birdhouse) my way to see if I could make it into something "useful." I turned the base into a lamp of some sorts for her (can't recall what it looks like) and had the roof of the kicking around for a while. Then my landlady tossed out a decorative birdhouse and I hatched a plan.

I took the roof off the birdhouse, added some tropical beachcomber elements like a "driftwood" fence, carved palm frond tikis (grown in Washington the State palms), a thatch porch roof, a bird getting tipsy on the porch roof, and someone having a drink inside. I put the bamboo roof on with a little light in it so it glows and you can see the interior if you peek through the door hole.

This was one of those projects I thought I'd knock out in a couple hours. I'm still laughing at that thought.

I posted this in my pile of pupu a while back, does it count as a microcosm? Mermaid, sea turtle, & Moai mad of polymer clay, poured acrylic water, brandy bottle and a solar powered light.
