WOW! TikiMango, Conga, Surfin', Lake and Seeksurf!
It's something to be happy to have so many compliments from talented carver!! Thank's, thank you all!!!

TM: thank's, for eyes inlay I really fear of spoiling, it was double or quits...

Conga: also thank's, and yes lot of time to research in this one...I think it was worth it. Now I'm waiting yours!

Surfin': Thank's for enthusiasm!!! Hot linseed becomes more fluid and will more easily and more deeply into the wood. In old times was boiled in linseed oil the wooden gears of mills to increase their hardness.

Lake: Thank's! Happy to see you here and more happy when you post an update with new pieces!

Seek: Yes I'm a proud papa... of my two daughters! Thank's for the comps! And what's new at the tiki bog?


There he is dressed in the latest fashion of mythology books of the 60's.


Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

Outstanding !. . .simply outstanding. You may be interested in the Easter Island theories of Thor Heyerdahl presented in his book EASTER ISLAND: THE MYSTERY SOLVED.

Absolutely Incredible Jerome, you must have experience in a previous life, there is just too much detail done here for the small amount of experience you have in carving.
