Uttaq's walrus is absolutely exquisite.
Toofy's hide is smooth and cool to the touch..
A walrus is a large bulky animal with considerable girth but Toofy is fluid and playful.
His tusks are exquisite.
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.
See our notes on The Gjoa Haven Collection.
