This is a monumental piece carved with a stone that I rarely see.
The rich copper brown stone is the cornerstone of this magnificent work by Shaa.
The vibrancy and purity of the stone create a tenuous dilemma from within.
The movement and balance of the bear is captivating.
Shaa is a skilled carver whose work brings to mind the Master Carvers Nuna Parr and Isaaci Petaulassie.
