This is an amazing piece by Joseph Suqslaq.
I am captivated by the manner in which Joseph carves Warrior Heart's large sharp teeth.
This is a ferocious mouth. The teeth are distinct but they are carved as part of the upper and lower jaw.
The stone is a field or sandstone. It is a smooth finish but it is a matte finish which gives the bear hide a realistic look.
Joseph focusses our attention on the head and neck of this magnificent bear.
Warrior Heart is a beauty.
