Subject to light, this masterpiece explodes with browns and hues of oranges. It is one of the most brilliantly colored pieces we have seen from Dorset. It is also one of Toonoo's best works.
Seeing this piece for the first time, I knew I had to have it. The pronounced white eyes contrasted with the intense and magnificent darkish brown stone really make this piece "pop". Its a wonderfully crafted abstract piece of art that would especially look amazing in a modernistic open concept home or condo as well as an office.
This transformation subject is typical of Toono's best work; it epitomizes the Cape Dorset aesthetic and shows off Toonoo's consummate technical skill, flair and humor.
This is simply a brilliant masterpiece by world famous Toonoo Sharky. The absolute nicest transformation piece I have ever witnessed anyone do. Everything comes together perfectly in this piece. The crispness of the white eyes, the incredible detail, the gorgeous green stone to even the expression on the wolfs face. The life and motion of this piece make the wolf almost want to lift off on its own. The curvatures, and polish are all triple-A.
Even if I asked Toonoo to make me another one like this, he wouldn't be able to. Something as beautiful as this piece almost happens by accident. An artist like Toonoo will do his best to mold the stone, but so many other factors come into play in having a masterpiece like this come to being.
This beautiful wolf is new and a masterpiece for any museum. Above and beyond the exquisite lines and curves, it is also massively big - making it a statement piece for any home or gallery (like ours). It is the first piece my clients or guests notice when entering our gallery.
The carving is completely perfect! This stunning sculpture comes with an Igloo Tag (Certified of Authenticity) and also signed on the bottom by the artist. We buy directly from the artist and can offer you better deals.
Toonoo has numerous international exhibitions and awards.
