Nice carve Amate. Very tribal vibe going on with this fella, and I love the hands and
feet. Great way to start the new year.

Thanks all. Yes Conga, I've been putting more effort into the feet and hands. FYI BigT, the background shots are from Moody Gardens in Galveston.

It looks fantastic amate! I love the details of the hands and feet. The background makes it look complete. I am jealous (of the tiki and the climate) we are iced in this morning!

Jerome - he's pretty rough but I'm happy with the way he turned out.
Poobah - quite a compliment from one of the "hands and feet" masters. Thanks. The climate is somewhat of an illusion however. The rainforest at Moody Gardens is inside a 10 story tall, glass covered and climate controlled pyrimid.

Thanks for looking in Seeks. I can't wait to see your new project.

I finished this up over the weekend. He is 26 inches and made of oak. I've noticed that stains seem to mellow with time so I think he'll look a lot more ancient in a few months. (It hasn't started to green up outdoors yet so I had to fake the background in the photos again.)

I love the knuckles,grain, and all of the details on this guy! I'll take your fake background over mine any day. We had four more inches of snow! Keep up the great work!

Amate, you rock. Some of the coolest stuff is right here. Another great
effort, looks like nice detail on the face, and the posture is terrific.
Keep 'em coming.

Very nice work, and from Oak even! That's some hard wood!

Great detail and wonderful color choice!
