“The Great Bear” is an author’s stone-carving sculpture where every detail has its own place creating the metaphorical image: an old wise shaman with a lunar tambourine iridescent like one of the constellation “pearls”. Не looked up to the Big Dipper appearing in his mind like a white arctic bear. For the attentive viewer there is an entertaining carving fish element on the edge.
Wide edges of the smoky quartz create an impressive play of light, mirror reflections and optical illusions magnify the inner world of the sculpture. In the transparent depth of rare “phantom” quartz nature and time created a unique effect, like a ghost of a mysterious pyramid.
