To give a brief overview of this sculpture, this spectacular piece flows from head to toe. The lines and proportions are immaculate. The polish and colour are distinguished and breathtaking. Moreover, it is a double carving, meaning there are two walruses in unison together. The colour is an outstanding light brown and green. When put under a light, the luminescent colours really come alive.

The carving is signed on the bottom and comes with an igloo tag.
