My name is Maui. Natives call me the mighty one.
I tame the playful sun, and gave my people time.
Now they set their clocks by mine,
for I am tropic standard time


Whelp, this one took a little longer for various reasons. Here we go...

Cardboard skeleton:


Papier mache starts to go on. After this was taken I actually redid the head since the shape wasn't working.


Drying, along with his playful little friend.


Then a bunch of time passes, and:

No, he's not a functional fountain. Maui is, however, a functional clock! You can see about five minutes passed between those photos. One of the time consuming parts of the build was that I didn't decide to make him a clock until after the build was complete, so I needed to hollow him out.

I'm not thrilled with the colors - the red and yellow both need to be a little more orange. I wish I could color-match Pele! Maui's paint job is also far less forgiving (the little blue face guy and playful sun)
