This jubilous walrus is swaying from side to side. Done in a ravishing dark stone, Jaco continues to surpass our expectations in producing sculpture after sculpture that are all categorically masterpieces.
This masterful walrus can only be achieved by a master carver like Jaco. The stone is so deep and rich. The ripples, the detail, the posture and movement are so fluid.
I am mesmerized by this piece with its flawless symmetry, acute lines, and flawless lines. The movements of this piece are formidable!
I have seen many memorable walrus carvings over the years but Jaco always adds a unique perspective to his sculptures. He is a modernist with a touch of minimalism.
The posture, movement and stone make this carving a Masterpiece.
Jaco Ishulutak has had many prestigious commissions. He is a premier elite master carver sharing this honour with Paul Maliki, Manasie Akpaliapik and Abraham Ruben.
This is your opportunity to own a masterpiece by one of the top five Inuit artists in the world.
