The smooth strong texture of the walrus’ hide is magical.
Somehow the hide unmasks the barely perceptible underlying musculature.
A walrus is a large bulky animal with considerable girth but Suqslaq’s Walrus is fluid and playful. Its tusks are exquisite.
The allure of this masterpiece is its realism.
This is a sculpture of a real walrus in its natural environment.
I truly admire carvings from distant Northern communities like Gjoa Haven. These carvings are unique and original, not at all like other Inuit carvings. These artists strive to carve in a traditional manner depicting the real animal in its natural setting.
Walrus is clearly unique and carved in a traditional Inuit fashion.
Its beauty is exemplary. I did not hesitate a moment in acquiring this piece for my clients.
Joseph’s walrus will put magic into your collection.
We promise to send you only good things
