I thought the Tiki central might like to see some of the work that is currently being done in the Marquesan Islands.

I just returned this past week from a journey on the Aranui - a wonderful trip. Part of the fun is shopping in the various handicraft centers on several of the islands. When the Aranui arrives - usually once every 3 weeks, the carvers and other vendors bring their wares to sell.

The following link is to an album of my purchases. When possible, I tried to include a photo of the specific carver before the photos of his work.

To see other pictures from my Marquesan trip (including over 250 photos of tikis) visit the following thread.

I'm hoping my posting of these photos will provide further inspiration for your with your own individual work - and perhaps plant the idea in your head that perhaps some day, you too will want to visit the Marquesas Islands.

I lot of inspirational reference material there. It'll take a while for all of that to soak in.

Some awesome carvings there.

I like how a lot of it really mixed classic styles in really warped/abstract shapes.
