Large Inuit Carving of a Walrus

Here's a large Inuit carving of a walrus. It was carved by Joanasie Johah of Iqaluit, Nunavut and has that nice green serpentine stone that is often used by Inuit carvers in that region. It is 10 1/4 inches in length, 7 1/2 inches high by 4 inches. The tusks are made of caribou antler. For larger and additional images, see Inuit carving of walrus.

Enjoy your blog and web site. Excellent design and information. Have loved Inuit art for a long time. Just finished reading Midnight to North. Too little is generally know and respected.
