This is an unusual yet fascinating piece.
We are still unsure of what exactly this animal is but it is likely a sea creature (perhaps a Moray eel) that is quietly lying in a stony crevasse waiting to viciously attack an unsuspecting prey with its fiendish teeth.
The mottled green and black stone suggests the creature is covered in a mucoid slime found only in the depths of the cold sea.
Ulluluq reminds us of the danger that lurks in hidden places.
This is a gorgeous Gjoa Haven piece that is a sharp contrast to the "joyful and innocent" pieces in your collection.
