Hi Tikiheads,
here are a few fotos of my carvings, hope you like them.
best wishes,
Rioturban

the big one
made of spruce wood and is about 2 meters high,
eyes are paua shells



"The Tongue Tiki"
it is carved out of cypress wood and is about 1 meter high,
eyes are paua shell inlays



"The scales Tiki"
its also cypress wood and is about 1 meter high with paua shell inlays



one of my first pieces,
made of cherry wood and about 50 cm high



this one is a tiki for incense sticks,
you can take off the bee and put an incense stick
into the hole.the ash would fall onto the tongue.



also one of my first tikis is this one,
its chestnut wood with paua shell eyes



the "ferocious treebeard",
a rough practice piece for the first steps with the chainsaw



this one is a practice piece from the book:"te toi Whakairo"from Hirini Moko Mead
its shown step by step how to carve it and very good for beginners
its 33cm high, 15 wide and 5cm thick



"The Woodpecker"
made out off robinia (bastard acacia)with paua shell inlays.
its about 1 meter high.

Your work is incredible. Each piece is unique and well composed. You have a great sense for design. Very nice.
