Inuit art: Inuk Hunter captures whale setting
Inuit Artist: Jimmy Iqaluq
Size: 10" long, 5.25" high, 2" wide
This is a gorgeous sculptures by world famous Jimmy Iqaluq. The subject is completely original and you can be assured when Jimmy retires from carving, this piece will be a centerpiece at an auction and will go for many thousands over.
This setting is a center piece for any Inuit art gallery as it is from the world famous Jimmy Iqaluq (top five Inuit artists in Canada). This carving is in 100% perfect condition, brand new. I admire the different stones and subjects set within the carving. There is much happening in this piece and lends itself to the audience intrigue and imagination of traditional Inuit life. This is what attracted me most to this piece.
The carving is signed on the bottom and comes with an igloo tag.
