This is a great little carving by an unknown Inuit artist. The piece was made in Pangnirtung.  The seal has been carved from marble. The harpoon is mostly wood, with an ivory tip. The measurements of the piece include the length of the harpoon. They do not include the length of the rope that attaches the harpoon to the seal. The use of multiple materials, especially the modern rope is unusual and make the piece stand out.


Due to the use of ivory in this piece it will only be shipped within Canada.
