This Hunter's teeth are not human.
This Ulluluq sculpture is revealing the transformation of a Shaman from a human into an animal.
The transformation has not progressed enough to determine which animal the Shaman is "shape shifting" into but the wide mouth with jagged vicious teeth would suggest a wolf to me.
Notice the Shaman's forearms The stubby appendages are not human.
Do they look like paws to you?
Shaman is mystical and mysterious.
This is a departure from the more common childlike and quirky Gjoa Haven style of carving.
Sometimes, we welcome such a change!
