This is a very cool carving of a cruising shark. It is carved from a single piece of whalebone, and is a real little beauty! It is a contemporary toki shape and is strung with an adjustable neck cord.
The shark is carved in relief on the top face of the bone. It is offset - a shark entering the scene from the side, sliding across a sandy bottom perhaps...
The bone is polished to a soft shine on the front - the back exhibits the gnarly, grained structure typical of parts of whalebone.
CRUISIN' will also be of interest to lovers of traditional, carved art. Sea creatures are a loved subject of carvers from our part of the world, and this is a beauty. Carved by a new artist for us - Sami - this is a one-off piece and won't be repeated, so if you like this, snap it up!
