I just finished another Kuka'ilimoku pendant. This time you can tell he is a male. I was contemplating if I should of carved him donning a malo, the traditional loin cloth but opted for the birthday suit instead.

Traditionally, in ancient times Hawaiian tikis were always dressed with natural fibrous materials covering their loins. They just decayed faster than the hard wooden counterpart and ever since the introduction of Christianity, the people never restored the loincloths for the tiki thus the naked images ever so present today.

Maybe the next one I carve will be wearing a malo.

I just listed him on ebay so if anyone's interested, he'll be in the Tiki Marketplace forum.
