Masterpiece Carving! Magnificent Movement!
Kuzy Curley, a distinct and versatile craftsman, presents us with an exquisite Orca swimming against the ocean waves on its way home to meet up with his mates.
I can't recall seeing whale bone used as the medium to represent the ocean.
I love the whimsy of this sculpture.
Kuzy has positioned the Orca on its tail and on a 45 degree angle. With a determined look on its face, our Orca is grappling with the waves, snapping its powerful tail to propel himself forward.
When the deep rich colour of the Orca is contrasted against the pale whalebone, the sculpture explodes with energy.
Can't you feel the powerful movement as Orca courses through the rough sea on his way home to his pod?
This is a fascinating perspective on one of the Arctic Ocean's most beautiful creatures.
Wouldn't it be a magnificent addition to your collection?
