Carving without a plan - I like it!

Cy/Will – I’m pretty happy with the carve but I may refinish him this summer.
And I did not carve the hat Will …it’s an accessory. Might be why my smart ass neighbor is always giving me crap about “playing with dolls”.
So, here’s the other two “Lost Menehune”. The first one is 12 inches.









And the second one is 10 inches.





If you should happen to see this Proffessor G, these photos were taken at Matagorda. After leaving the beach , I was idling down a levee to cross a marsh a short distance away, I ran across this fellow and a few of his friends. I quit taking photos after the 10th one I came upon. I plan on going back to that location when I have more time.



At some point I began to refer to the three Menehune as “Los Lonely Boys” after a regional band and decided they need some company. I somehow became distracted and failed to leave enough wood to carve her some hair. I’ll have to try to figure something out to correct that.
Thanks for lookin in’

I finished up a couple of the small studies I was working on. I plan on taking what I learned and scale up to larger logs.
Lono is ~ 10 inches





Kane is 8 inches





Also making some changes to my standard Ku headdress



Have not decided what to do about the lack of hair on the Menehine. I might just slap a straw hat on her like the men.

Jon – glad you are enjoying them and really appreciate the “atta boys”!
Grog – even though I’m a wood carver, I still haven’t mastered carving “wood”. Besides, he’s wearing briefs. Glad you stopped by!
Wtango – I’m afraid I’m having a bit too much fun on the little people…loosing interest in doing anything else.

Excellent thread.

Hilarious & Brilliant idea!

Ve•nus
noun,
Archaeology . a statuette of a female figure typically having exaggerated breasts, belly, or buttocks . . .

Venus of Matagorda: First Lady of the Lost Menehune. 10 inches tall







Conga – Well, as far as making menehune babies, my original plan was to carve a few females and then let the males and nature take their course. It has recently come to my attention that my male figures are lacking in the winkie department so that might upset my plans… we’ll just have to see how things turn out. Here are a couple more of the little people in the works.






BigT – I’ve been down in your area along the upper coast taking care of some business so I’ve made several beach runs. Revisiting all those beaches I frequented in my youth.

Mac – April was cooler than normal but the heat is just around the corner…by the first day of summer, it will be too hot to get more than a couple of hours a day of carving in. Got to rig up some shade.

This Moai, one of my first, has been released back into his native habitat. He started out as driftwood so I do not consider it littering.



While on the subject of driftwood, the beach on the other side of the river mouth had plenty of it. Damn pelicans nearly ruined the shot. Fortunately, I was able to shoot over them.



Here’s an evening shot of the same beach only using a different angle and different pelicans
