I thought I recognized that face. He gets to play guitar and then go fishin'. That's not a bad life for a statue.

If you put a little wrapped red handkerchief on the end of the pole he could also be a "hobo-tiki"

Nice carve and great spear-fishin' stance!

thanks guys! I wasn't that happy with the guitar....I had to try to change this guy. I liked the face and tats, so I think this change works.

I liked him even with the guitar. You did an excellent job of changing directions to come up with a new design.

very nice classic lines on this one - the less is more ideology. I can totally see this guy in a vintage establishment! VERY well executed.

You going to be at the next ITMP?

Thanks McTiKi, Amate, Big T and Polynesiac.
I didn't like the guitar because it had to follow the curve of the log ( I did one that was playing the uke, but it was carved from a larger diameter log so I could carve deeper and keep the uke flat) so...I thought "what the heck" and removed the guitar then grabbed a big drill bit and hoped for the best.

Big T, that modern-ish style is a fun carve....I've done a few and they're a popular style.

Polynesiac, that means a lot that he could fit into an old-skool TiKi establishment, thanks! and I will be at the next ITMP this Saturday. stop by and say hi if you're there.
