“a calm day on the water”



I’ve seen a few carvings where there is an animal or spirit half-in or half-out of the water. With this serpentine piece I could see a face at the end from the very start. So, I decided to make it a Sedna. She peers out from the surface, looking at the land dwellers, remembering…remembering…what it was like to live up there. She prefers the water.
