“The sculpture is of my father (Toonoo) carving a bear. I remember him carving when I was young. He liked carving bears. It was 1959, I remember I was ten years old and had just returned from hospital in the south after treatment for tuberculosis. I had been in hospital in 1955, then again from 1957 to 1959. After my third visit to hospital for 6 months in 1965, I sold my first carving. I only started carving seriously when I had my first child in 1970.”
