These handcarved pop culture totems are insane, and completely awesome.
Here are three handcarved pop culture totems that Ojimbo carved for the upcoming "Monster Mayhem and Day of the Dead Delights" show at Roq la Rue this Friday the 13th. (Yes Kipling- that is an angel cyclops kitty atop one of those totems!)
Jim "Ojimbo" Sheely (Ohio) carves mind boggling detailed wood pop culture totem poles and wall pieces. Carving almost exclusively from kiln dried American basswood, Ojimbo originally was entranced by the carving of cultures in which it was integral to their culture, such as the Pacific Northwest Coast tribes, New Zealand’s Maori, and Balinese carvers.
