    All finished, lacquered and in flight to its new home. I always send the story with the carved item....although I did leave out the part that this is the God ...that they used to do the human sacrifice too..... that is what I call too much information. This is for a tiki collector....they wanted something super Hawaiian mythology type.

          Mark it is the hardwood, Hawaiian monkeypod which has a major grain pattern often going from white to brown to black grain patterns, .....because monkeypod has a bad name because it is used in Asia for cheap tourist to sell items. It is one tree that grows huge. But many people will not buy if they find out it is monkeypod. For that reason we often name it ....Hawaiian rainforest tree....

                Beautiful work, Di! The finish really brings out the wood colors.

                  Nice Job Di! When I was a kid in Honolulu, we had a tiki made from a palm tree. It finally decomposed in 1990! It travelled everywhere with us. Again, great job!
