This is a charming old fashioned simple lined Walrus by Padli Uttuujaq Ilisituk from Sugluk – Salluit. Stretching 11 inches this is carving that simply wants to be and has to be loved. The era is not for certain, but probably from somewhere in the 1950’s or 1960’s. Don’t let the photographs mislead you, this is “a stone to behold”. Just charming.
