Masterpiece Carving! Magnificent Movement!

How has Ragee managed to balance this vertical Char fish without it tipping over?

I must tell you I cannot recall seeing a Char carving posed vertically, as if it is descending into the depths of the Arctic Sea.

The look on the Char's face is priceless, almost as if it is rolling its eyes in a gesture of sarcasm. 

The warm gold stone flecked with black is beautiful and appropriate to the sculpture. 

All these details add up to one of the most attractive fish that I have seen in a while.

Pirouette is slender and lithe.

This is Turataga Ragee at his finest.  

The Dorset aesthetic is all about realism. 

This Char is meticulously carved and finely detailed using the Realism style.

This is an exquisite and unique piece of art.
