The visage of the electric green serpentine stone is striking to its very core. The radiance that is emitted from its tonality is second to none. This is one of the very top pieces we at the gallery have ever seen Toonoo accomplish.
The stoically and dramatic green stone render this piece to new levels whereas the vibrancy is nothing short of stunning.
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 transformation subject is typical of his best work; it epitomizes the Cape Dorset aesthetic and shows off Toonoo's consummate technical skill, flair and humor.
