That is some serious talent. Unbelievable how these guys can carve on that scale, and with chain saws! Looks like they cleaned it up a little bit after the initial rough out. Bravo.

The lines in the headdress have chisel lines in them. Awesome piece of work, you can tell that guy worked his @ss off.

I can only say WOW as well. I'd love to own one personally and thats saying a lot given I don't know about the artist besides this post. Who is he? I checked out the website and it doesn't explain the tiki art at all (or did I miss something?)

Thanks for posting.

That's redwood. Geez, that guy's good! And is it just me, or does he bear a slight resemblance to Leroy of OA?

WOW is an understatement. Humbling is more like it.
2 questions.
What is that Tiki doing on the beach & what kind of value or cost are Tikis of that size.
This guy nailed this thing perfect. Every detail.
