Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!

Bertrand is a stunning sculpture of a basking walrus carved in the realistic style .

This simply means that the walrus looks like a real walrus!

Bask (verb ) lie exposed to warmth and light, for relaxation and pleasure.
"sprawled walrus basking in the afternoon sun".

Our walrus has his muzzle turned up to the sun, relishing its warmth.

His tusks are magnificent.

Johnny has carved Bertrand  with all the requisite details of a walrus; thick folds of fat along the back of the neck, large fan shaped tail, and front flippers holding up the massive weight of the torso.

The walrus is one of the Arctic's unique marine mammals.

Large and appearing somewhat ungainly in its movement, it is one of our more sought after carvings.
