An interesting carving by Inuit artist Kavavau Manumie. Kavavau Manumie is an artist from Cape Dorset. Cape Dorset is known as the Inuit art capital and produces many great pieces. This piece of a polar bears head emerging from a stone base is an unusual composition. It is a great use of a combination of ivory and stone. This is a small treasure. A great piece to add to your collection.
Due to the use of ivory in this piece it can only be shipped within Canada.
