Inuit art: Diving Walrus
Inuit Artist: Kelly Etidloie
Size: 9" long, 7" tall, 5" deep, 6 lbs.
Community: Cape Dorset, NU
This diving walrus is a masterpiece, perhaps his magnum opus, and certainly a prime example of how a walrus spirit should be depicted. Carved from an obdurate piece of dark green serpentine stone, it is exquisitely finished to the highest order a carver can do.
The carving is signed on the bottom and comes with an igloo tag.
