One Inuit Eskimo Native Basket Left

There's only one Inuit Eskimo Native basket left at Free Spirit Gallery. This particular basket was made by Lucy Weetaluktuk of Inukjuak, Nunavik (northern Arctic Quebec). It is made of sea lyme grass that is grown in the Inukjuak area. The top lid had a stone Inuit carving of a fish. This basket is nine inches high including the fish and six and a half inches at the widest diameter. Supply of these Inuit Eskimo Native baskets from the Canadian Arctic are very sporadic as the Inuit do not seem to make them all the time.

For more details on this basket, see Inuit Eskimo Native Baskets at Free Spirit Gallery. If this Native basket interests you, don't hesitate to order it as it is the last one in stock.
