Fantastic movements. Beautiful black marble colour

Alorut has been a prolific carver for several decades, and although he carved some great works in his lifetime, it is fair to say that this particular sedna is at the epitome height of his career.

This sedna sculpture is a masterpiece, perhaps his magnum opus and certainly a prime example of how a sedna spirit should look. Carved from an obdurate piece of black marble stone, it is exquisitely finished to the highest order a carver can do.

The beautiful craftsmanship, the movements, the historical context and  importance of this sedna in Inuit folklore, speaks eloquently of the physical and spiritual relationship between man and sea goddess.

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 copleted to a degree of perfection rarely ever seen.

This is not only a gorgeous black marble piece, but the surface flows so smoothly I could not believe how streamlined and refined it was. The electric black stone and overall disposition of this piece make it an incredible carving.

Morris Alorut is a very well established artist and is recognized internationally for his dancing bears. His sculptures are full of life with much movement. This is what attracts Inuit art enthusiasts to his works. 

Gorgeous white vibrant colour. 

This carving is new, signed. An igloo tag of authenticity is attached.
