This one was a challenge. Splitting a palm log and gluing up the pieces to form the legs was a challenge. Did I break any TIKI carvers rules by doing that... ??? Oh Well. I had this idea for a witch doctor / shaman / fertility god concept.

As the carving progressed I started to put a towel around the little guy to avoid any conflicts with the neighbors.
For once a full body Tiki that stands up well without being top heavy.

A closer view to show the parts that were glued together from the same palm blank which was very dry with a fair amount of
cracking/splitting.

I had to make a sacrifice to Gods by eating Barbecue Baby Back Ribs to get the bones for the necklace. Also I used one of my bone Tiki carvings so the Tiki is wearing a Tiki.

Back side view.

For modesty I got a straw table decoration from the party store to keep the little guy covered up.

I still need to put some more jewelry on him especially something for his ears. Thanks for looking.

KEEP YOUR CHISELS SHARP AND YOUR BANDAIDS CLOSE
