The outline is sophisticatedly exquisite as well. As always, Mathewsie Ashevak's sculpture is serene and understated. As with all truly great sculptures, form and meaning become one.
When you look at this sculpture, you know right away that a master carver created it. It is incredibly refined and detailed. Every curve is polished to perfection.
