A Qulliq is an Inuit lamp/stove which burns seal oil for fuel.

The stone is carved to form a rounded shape, with a depression at the top to hold the fuel which is usually seal oil.

A Qullik was traditionally a source of light and heat for Inuit people.

This Qulliq is both unique and traditional.

Inside the igloo, the Inuit would use this oil stove for cooking and for warmth.

Seal oil is extracted from seal blubber (fat).

Imagine having this beautiful "stove" as a conversation piece in your collection.
