Collectors of Inuit carving are drawn to these vignettes of daily Inuit life especially these hunting scenes.
A hunter with his kill paddling his kayak is a very popular topic.
The hunter has had a successful day out on the open water.
He has his seal in the back of his kayak.
His face is turned toward the sky as he checks the weather.
He holds his harpoon above his shoulder.
Has he spotted another seal?
Jaypeetie has lovingly carved this detailed carving of a satisfied hunter.
The scenes of modern Inuit life are both beautiful and enlightening.
