Masterpiece Sculpture! Incredible Balance!
I have been honoured to carry many Pudlalik Shaa carvings over the years.
His sculptures can be both dramatic and delightful all in the same breath.
His geese, in particular, are often aligned in striking postures.
The stone colour and pattern is simply amazing.
Deep bejeweled green traversed by thin veins of white and gray.
This green colour combined with the luminescence of the finish reminds me of deep dark still lake water.
What better environment for a goose?
Our Kicking Back Goose is able to stand on either his right or his left foot.
This makes him a two way dancing goose. I love how Pudlalik has carved the goose so when he is standing on one foot, the other is kicking backward and to the side!
This is Shaa demonstrating his incredible ability to balance thiis stunning sculpture in a very prearious position.
It takes talent and skill for an artist to be able to carve a dancing sculpture. The four way dancing carving requires the most experience and skill on the part of the artist.
But I believe that any dancing sculpture is a miracle in engineering.
Shaa is an artist to be admired.
I know that every Pudlalik sculpture I receive will be beautiful, imaginative and perfectly carved.
Have you seen Shaa's Gregarious Young Walrus?
Every collector should have a Shaa goose in their collection.
Kicking Back will be a delightful addition to your home.
