Here is a new style tiki I've been working on, cycloctopus. Legs are totally hollowed out. anyone else working on similar projects?

THAT is cool as hell, man. I've played with the whole tiki-clopse thing a couple of times and you can see two of them here:

Same general idea on three of my pieces(I have one squid-clopse tiki not pictured because it's not done yet), but yours is totally original. VERY nice job.

That's, uhhh, neato! Is that an abalone shell stuffed in the eye hole? If so, great idea--beats cutting little pieces of abalone out for inlay work.
