This is a real masterpiece carving by none other - Toonoo Sharky. The stunning gorgeous pale green stone he uses absolutely radiate the entire room. It contrasts marvellously to the beautiful inlayed eyes made from caribou bone. The carving is very large, impressive and a definite conversational piece for all your audience. The proportions are perfect and the composition is very unique and original. Toonoo usually crafts transformational pieces, so when i saw this gorgeous Muskox by him, i jumped at the occasion. Again, if I may repeat myself, it is the green tones with the gorgeous eyes that really made me take notice of it.
It's very refined and perfect that you can tell right away that a master carver created it. It has an incredibly positive and happy look. Reason why this is a masterpiece:
1. Famous Inuit artist - Toonoo Sharky.
2. Very rare subject for Toonoo (great investment value)
3. Fantastic colour - rich pale green
4. Peaceful and happy facial expressions.
