- Shaman VII is
approximately 6" tall by 2" wide. It is backed with a solid
laminated slab for permanent stability. Total thickness is ≈ 1/2".
- The Companion or
Ghost figures are approximately 3" x 1" x >1/4".
- The finest quality
fracture-free, agatized dinosaur bone (i.e., "gembone") is used for
each and every piece.
- Each piece is
beautifully contoured then finished with a master polish.
Some photos may have
reflection lines that look like fractures; however, no fractured
material was used in the making of these beauties!
Framed Shaman VII
The colors are fairly accurate. As seen, the frame is a darker
brown with a grainy (sandy) texture.
Photos of the work in progress. The outlines of each piece have been
completed and are now ready for shaping.
Shaman VII shaped and ready for sanding/polishing.
All four Shamans completed.
Because photographing these highly polished figures is quite difficult,
multiple photos of the Shaman, taken with different lighting and
are presented here.
Photos with visible reflection lines provide an idea of the polish and
contouring of each piece.
Photos with no reflection show color and structure, but look as though
they are flat pieces, which they are definitely not.
