*** U.S. buyers cannot purchase this piece because ivory is restricted by Canadian Government Customs. We ship only to a Canadian address.
I was immediately taken with this very unusual carving.
Have you ever seen a tiny seal sitting in the bowl of an ivory spoon?
I would say that Nakoolak is showing off his carving skills with this tiny scene.
The ivory spoon rests on a gorgeous dark green stone. The contrast between the ivory and the green creates elegance.
Do you know anyone who collects spoons? This would be the perfect addition to their collection.
