Masterpiece Sculpture! Magnificent Movement!
Has Toonoo ever carved a Caribou like Tundra King?
Sporting intimidating pointed antlers, this is a regal crown for a majestic animal.
I love the sly smile and the animated inlaid eyes.
Caribou are a challenging sculpture for carvers .
They have four long slim legs that can easily break mid execution of the piece.
Tundra King's legs are muscular with large hooves which he plants deliberately on th ground with each step.
The deep dark green/black stone is decorated with fine white and gray veins.
The veins on Tundra's neck look like the decorative chain necklaces of a King.
Another home run from Toonoo Sharky.
His talent and creative genius keeps evolving to higher heights!
