Steuben design no. 9484; this design was created in 2009.
Description: This image is of a nearly colorless, hand-formed, glass figure made to resemble a walrus. Hobbling on land but agile in the arctic waters of its habitat, the dignified walrus is renowned for its well-padded frame, tough wrinkled hide, and yard-long tusks. The Steuben rendition of this rotund mammal is made of optically pure crystal that bulges and glistens to create the Walrus's body, and is accented by opaque glass tusks. This sculpture is positioned in the center of the image, with the walrus standing proud showing off its remarkable tusks. There is a light gray reflection that can be seen beneath the walrus's feet, and the backdrop to the image is completely white.
Image orientation: portrait.
