Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes

Sharky Nuna began carving already in 1950. He had been working at a measured pace until the early 1970s when he was finally "discovered" and given five solo shows in Canada, the U.S. and Germany up to his death in 1979. His sculptures of birds are among the most elegant and poetic we have seen. This pair, in which one bird gently preens the other, is especially lovely.
