The highlight of this piece is exclaimed to the stunning black marble stone setting. This establishes a gateway to a euphoric dynamic where the sculpture is completed to a degree of perfection rarely ever seen.

Some of the greatest works of Inuit sculpture defy analysis. And sometimes the adjectives actually seem to contradict one another. How can a sculpture have a commanding presence and yet also be genuinely winsome? How can a work be quirkily naive and yet highly refined? How can a sculpture be truly monumental and yet oh so caressable? This masterpiece has all of these qualities and probably a few more besides.

The reflection, polish and shine are divine. The proportions are perfect and very life like.
