“I enjoyed creating this portrait with the fur on his hood ruffled by the wind. It was great carving Italian marble because it holds the detail so well although one has to be quite careful chiseling it. The stone captures the shadows especially when lit from above. The Carrara marble was gifted to me by my cousin John Terriak, who is known Labrador carver. The anhydrite hood was a piece of stone I quarried myself in New Brunswick some ten years ago when I was living there.”
