The Walrus Family from Cyrus Noble "Animals of the Sea" series.
The walrus, with its hulking body, long tusks, whiskers, and mournful expression, has long been a favorite of story tellers, photographers, and artists. He inhabits the frigid waters surrounding the North Pole, and usually lives a peaceful life digging clams, mussels, and other shell fish from the sea bottom with its long ivory tusks.
When attacked, a walrus can do terrible damage with its tusks; in a pack to fight off an enemy they are vulnerable to harm from only one creature -- man. The walrus population has declined severely as a result of commericial hunting, but as yet is not on the endangered list.
This Cyrus Noble "Walrus," first in a series of ceramic works entitled "Animals of the Sea."
All the ceramics in this series are hand-painted and have been produced from original sculptures in limited numbers.
