thanks for looking!

thanks a lot bullet. i hope to have quite a bit of great stuff by then. i'm working my hands until they ache.

somebody asked me how it fit together. here's how and another progress shot of the tiny head. (remind me not to carve this small again.)

it will be lashed with a braided cord also.

Yo Perry: How small (big) is that piece?

My guess: one and three quarters inches.

Hi PD

Does your camera have macro? Some have a better macro than others, and without it, you will never get a nice close up shot.

Good to see this new matau from you. There havent been too many hooks around recently. Fiddly fingerwork.

Speaking of new works from pdrake; I just received a new Moai in the post today!! Yay! Thanks mate, he's a beaut!
-Our camera is away at a 5yr olds disco tonight so I cant take a pic but want to ask, what sort of jade is set into the earlobe? Its a nice yellow-green but not NZ? Im thinking...

Happy Easter Brah!

Tama
