MUSEUM QUALITY PIECE!

 

Done in a smooth and refined argelite stone, Jimmy persist an endearing sense of perfection while achieving a raw calmness of savagery.

The stoic and opulent pallid stone punctuated by the red hot fired eyes lends itself to the terse lines and flawless symmetry. This howls to the conclusion of a masterpiece with bounteous sashay and audacity.

One of a kind sculpture. Jimmy likes to experiment and carve different subjects, this time he created a fantastic walrus.

As always with Jimmy's sculptures every detail is a masterpiece. This walrus has claws carved out of caribou antlers, whiskers (made out of fishing line) and tusks (caribou antler).
Beautiful insert eyes (made out of caribou antler and black stone).
