This arresting sculpture is an early work by Karoo Ashevak. Its only distinct features are a single eye and a large, toothy, open mouth, both carefully detailed. The sculpture is signed in syllabics, confirming a viewer's immediate impression that the work is by Karoo. Presumably it depicts a spirit.
Karoo Ashevak | Cyclops figure | c. 1965 | Alaska on Madison
