Inuit art: Bowhead Whale
Inuit Artist: Nungusuitok Qadjuajuk
Size: 7.5" high, 4" wide, 4.5" deep
Community: Cape Dorset, NU 21
This dynamic Bowhead whale carved by Nungusuitok, has been suspended forever in time in a dramatic breaching position.
In this vertical position, with head up and tail down, the whale breaks through the water’s surface to breathe.
In this breach position, this whale could be saying "I'm King, make way"!
OR he could be showing off in front of some very lovely Bowhead ladies.
OR he could be yelling to the pod "Come on. Let's get out of here. I sense danger".
The most appealing feature of our whale is the flawless jet black stone and its gleeming finish.
The shine gives the impression that water is streaming down the thick skin as the whale clears the ocean.
The second feature is the whale's human looking eyes and the etched gills.
Qadjuajuk's interpretation of this magnificent marine mammal is exquisite.
This carving is immaculate in its proportion.
Bowhead Whale is seeking a permanent home.
Imagine your joy to see him in your home or office every day.
