This piece is for sale to Canadian residents only. Due to its Ivory substance, this piece is restricted for sale to all residents outside of Canada.
This is a beautiful composition of a Inuk ice fishing. The face is done in Ivory. The body and base is done in whale bone. This is the kind of piece that will be represented one day in an Inuit art auction (as they include only the finest pieces in their catalogues).
The embedded face made from ivory is what drew me to this piece. It is a handsome composition done in a traditional style that will stand the test of time.
