Masterpiece Carving! Magnificent History!

Barry Lyndon is a unique Inuit art piece that is difficult to find.

When the Inuit Art Quarterly's spring edition came out, collectors immediately fell in love with its cover (Jamesie's Pitseolak's famous motorcycles). The abstractness, the boundaries it pushed, and the utilitarian industrial concept it captured was astonishing and mind blowing. It brought Inuit art into this Andy Warhol type dimension never seen before.

Jamesie Pitseolak unknowingly pioneered yet a new generation of Inuit carvers. Life in the North, although very traditional at times, has also adapted very much so to Western society. The inspiration to craft subject matters that are everyday essentials for the Inuit will remain the legacy of Jamesie Pitseolak.

Barry Lyndon is a set of two rifles that are carefully laid down while their own takes a moment to survey the terrain and look for potential prey.

I have seen rifles being held by Inuk men in hunting scenes but I can't recall seeing a set of rifles as the main "menu"

Barry Lyndon will be the talking point of your collection for years!
