Inuit Art Dancing Walrus

In the world of Inuit art, dancing polar bears are often the Inuit carvings that get the most attention and demand. In addition to Inuit carvings of dancing polar bears, Inuit artists have been known to produce dancing walruses as well. The walruses are carved with the same touch of humor as the polar bears. An example is the Inuit carving of a dancing walrus below carved by Juta Ipeelee of Iqaluit, Nunavut. It is 5 inches high with its tusks made from caribou antler. To see more images of this Inuit art dancing walrus as well as other walruses, see Free Spirit Gallery of Inuit Walrus carvings.
