This is a gorgeous Owl in a deep darkish grey serpentine stone with lightning electric green eyes. One of our favorites by Toonoo. The beautiful stone, movement and innocence send positive waves throughout our gallery.
The highlite of this piece is bar none - the stone and coloration. The colors in particular are electric. I have never seen a carving done in a deep greyish green stone like this before.
Toonoo began his tenure as a carver at the early age of ten, and entered his first exhibition while still in his teens. He is widely recognized as a major carving talent.
This owl subject is typical of his best work; it epitomizes the Cape Dorset aesthetic and shows off Toonoo's consummate technical skill, flair and humor.
