The elongated neck, compressing the torso into the realm of abstract is a deliberate exaggeration by Etidloie to create further exhilaration.
The sense of balance, crisp lines and coloration are punctuated by the inlaid eyes. This feature lends itself to a strengthened character and prodigious intensity.
The carving is signed on the bottom and comes with an igloo tag.
