This is a beautiful rendition of a swimming Beluga Whale by Louis Uttaq.

Powerful creatures of the Arctic sea, this piece is elevated on an antler allowing the viewer to observe his power and might as it speeds through the water like lightning. 

This perspective allows the viewer to see the entire whale as it moves through the Arctic Ocean. 

The details are exquisite; large round eyes, beautifully carved
flippers and tail and the dark black and mossy green stone is cool and so sleek.

I find this whale enchanting. Louie has given this piece an innocent countenance.  I would suggest this is a young whale who may be lagging behind his mother and his pod.

This would be an extraordinary gift for a wedding, especially to someone who is new to Inuit art because this sculpture has such universal appeal.

Louie carves many different subjects but whales seem to be a favorite.
