“An odd little carving”, says the site’s comment,”her breasts are the tail fin”.
‘SeaShe’, like most of the First Nation’s sculptures, illustrates a story, usually from ancient legends. In this case,I think Knicki (Calgary, CDN) chose the tale of the Dogfish Woman.See dogfish here (it is a shark ).

The rock is what struck my interest; see how the author played with the colours. The mottled grey might have reminded him the shark’s skin (dogfish) and inspired the whole work.
