Beautifully crafted from a soft, black soapstone, this sculpture of a falcon standing over a fish was made by the well-known artist Thomassie Tukai in the 1990s. The presence and power of this piece goes unsaid, yet, combined with the softness of the soapstone, this piece becomes an incredibly unique and commanding work of art.
