|Of deep black soapstone, this figural group of a hunter and walrus or seal (?) is beautifully carved, and is artful from every direction. The soapstone has a nice soft luster, with detailing that depicts the fur of the animal. A nice size, it measures 4 1/4" high is 5 3/4" wide and about 4" deep. There is a signature scratched on the bottom, along with some numbers, and is part of a good collection of Inuit sculpture collected decades ago. The artful quality of this sculpture is unusual, clearly the work of a very skilled artist. Please see out other listings of additional Inuit sculpture.|
