**Jimmy Iqaluq SIGNATURE Basking Walrus carving


Have you seen a more spectacular walrus carving?

Walruses are large "sprawling" animals.

Their hides are rippled with folds of thick fat.

The walrus loves to bask in the sun on the Arctic ice.

Hoover is Walrus perfection!

First, he is carved by legendary Jimmy Iqaluq.

Second, Jimmy uses this magnificent green coloured stone as his substrate.

Third, the whiskers are recreated using "fishing line"!

And finally, Jimmy has given Hoover his Signature red eyes.

Add the meticulous and loving carving of Iqaluq and viola, a Masterpiece! 

Iqaluq's devotion to detail is one of the reasons he is one of Canada's top five Inuit carvers.

Hoover  is a brilliantly polished and beautifully detailed walrus.
