10" White Beluga Whale by Esau Kripanik
is on back order
Inuit art: Beluga Whale
Inuit Artist: Esau Kripanik
Size: 10" long, 4.5" tall, 4" wide
This is a beautiful and perfectly proportioned beluga whale by Esau Kripanik. Carvers from Igloolik play an emphasis on realism They push themselves to create sculptures that appear to be in their natural environment, that look real and have movements
What interests me about this piece is the composition itself. I like whales portrayed in their natural habitat. The beautiful white stone immediately brings attention to this piece.
Signed by the artist, comes with igloo tag.
