Here is the completion of moving in a family of 24 fireflies on to the ceiling of the tiki bar.

All of the wiring is hidden behind the Philippine Nipa





From the wires behind the Nipa the wires to the fireflies are run between the bamboo reeds and the ceiling.



This is a picture of some of the fireflies.




To really see how the fireflies are animated I posted a short video on You Tube:

The power chord runs down the wall behind this bamboo pole.

I used to think carving was the most difficult then I realized that coming up wit the right design is equally difficult. Now I believe coming up wit the right colors can be as challenging.
