Tiki Carver Basement Kahuna Carving Again

Basement Kahuna Meeting House Piece

Tiki carver Basement Kahuna, a.k.a. Dave Wolfe, has recently picked up his chisels after a two year break from carving logs. Basement Kahuna recently relocated to Athens, Georgia, and now once again has access to the space he needs to start letting the chips fly. Basement Kahuna specializes in reproductions of genuine Oceanic art pieces, especially the intricate designs seen in the Maori, Cook Islands and Papua New Guinea cultures but also including the simpler designs from places like Rapa Nui. I feel very fortunate to have a Basement Kahuna in my collection, the piece pictured above. The world waits with bated breath to see what his next production will be.
