    Hi Mike

    Superb job on the te moko painting mate. The carved rifle butt is also a treat. Overall an excellent collaboration between Andy and yourself. I hope the bust sells very well.

    Good to see ta Moko comes through OK Tony, really inspired by your bust which I feel captured skin tone well.

    Appreciate your nice post John.
    Andy has helped make this a less onerous job for the painter by scribing the detail in much like they were originally done.
    It then takes care from the painter to complete the picture :)

    Stay safe,

    Mike
