An amazing transformation piece called, “Composition,” Cape Dorset artist Purlalik Shaa outdid himself with this incredible sculpture. Featuring a goose, two walrus (with antler tusks!), a polar bear, and an eagle, all framing two human faces, this piece balances well on a large foot-like walrus flipper. It is sculpted from a beautiful piece of the stone, serpentine, and would be a complement to any home or collection!
