Drum Dancer Inuit Sculpture by Johnnylee Nooveya

Johnnylee Nooveya is one of the best carvers of polar bear Inuit sculptures in the Canadian Arctic. This Iqaluit, Nunavut based Inuit carver also happens to be able to carve some really nice walruses and people as well. One fine example is the female drum dancer Inuit sculpture shown below. It is 7 inches tall and one of a few Inuit sculptures by Johnnylee Nooveya that is currently available for sale.

For more information on the cultural aspect, see the Inuit Drum Dancing article.
