Description

This is an older carving of a Hunter with Seals by Lizzie (Lalisie) from Povungnituk.  This carving originates from the 1960’s and has come to us through a private collector. The story is that this carving was part of a Canadian National Exhibition of carvers from Povungnituk in the early 60’s. The label underneath identifies the carver as Lasisie which could be a variant of the name Lizzie found incised underneath the hunter. There is not more known about the carver, piece or provenance. For collectors of older inuit carvings this would be a wonderful addition to their collection.
