23 x 25 x 5 in — 58.4 x 63.5 x 12.7 cm
A spectacular compositional work by the artist famous for his grand birds with raised wings. Etungat has been described as an independent soul and a perfectionist in regard to his sculpting. He started out working in small scale gradually building up to larger works and incorporating humans and other animals. These have become some of his most powerful creations.
