“This is my first nude sculpture and I wanted to capture the shaman after her transformation. I really had to be careful working on the arms because they are away from the body with so little support to cushion the pressure and vibration from my carving tools. Her right arm was especially scary because there is vein running through the stone at the elbow. There were many difficulties to overcome completing all the detailed carving on her tattooed face, her finger and toe nails and her long braid which is lifted from the rest of her hair.”
Billy was born on July 7, 1978, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador. In his early years he travelled eastern Canada residing and schooling in Ottawa, Yarmouth and Halifax in Nova Scotia, then at the age of thirteen returned to live in Goose Bay. He now lives in North West River in Labrador and enjoys fishing and hunting on the land with his family.
