Beautiful Walruse by a well renowned Inuit carver from Cape Dorset.
This walrus is carved out of rare black marble imported to Cape Dorset from Northern Quebec.
The beautiful polish and shine on this walrus give it a sense of chivalry while the dark deep black marble color and tone give it a strong intensity.
The walrus is signed by the artist and comes with igloo tag.
Kellypalik Etidlooie (1966 - )
Kellypalik is the son of the well-known Cape Dorset artists Etidlooie and Kingmeata. His older brother, Etulu Etidlooie is also a carver.
