This is a gorgeous seal with etched in marks on its back side. This gives addes depth to the piece.
The seal is wonderfully carved and is done in a beautiful white lime stone.
It comes from a very remote Inuit community called Igloolik. It is a community which is very isolated from the other northern communities. Artists here have a unique style. They focus on creating sculptures to look as real as possible. The stone is rarely polished and they prefer a dry flat finish.
What also makes sculptures by Esa Kripanik so different are the engravings often found on their sides.
This stunning Inuit carving comes with an Igloo Tag (Certified of Authenticity).
The carving is completely perfect, brand new! We buy directly from the artist therefore can offer you better deals.
