Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Piece!
Glamourous, exotic, mysterious.
When Isaaci’s Sedna was presented to me, I honestly gasped. This is an enormous piece. Its sheer size demands your full attention.
My first reaction was that Isaaci hadn’t just carved a Sedna, he had lovingly sculpted the essence of a woman.
Her clenched fists and muscular upper body reflect her strength and determination. Her femininity is captured in her slim hourglass figure and her mythical mermaid tail.
Isaaci has bestowed upon her a soft and alluring face; her thick long hair is swept into a flaxen braid.
Still, this young woman IS a Sedna; she is the Goddess of the Sea. Sedna exists to protect and guide all her “children”. She determines which of her creatures she will keep and which she will let go. Inuit hunters and fishermen have great respect for her power and her compassion.
Etidloie has chosen the perfection colour combination for his Sedna. The apple green serpentine stone plays against the heavily veined dark green serpentine conjuring the underwater world of seaweed and dark water.
Her companion Char reminds us that she is not human. We are so bewitched with her female command, we forget she is a mythical creature with a mermaid tail.
This mesmerizing figure will attract attention and adulation.
And once you accept her into your collection, Sedna that she is, she will lovingly embrace you as her own!
