When you look at this sculpture, you know right away that a master carver created it. It is incredibly refined and detailed. Every curve is polished to perfection.
(the pictures have some white blemishes, those are from the camera flash, the carving is 100% perfect black, every inch of it is refined)
The sculpture is signed by the artist and comes with igloo tag.
