|Of very dark soapstone, this carving depicts a hunter holding an animal that appears to be a seal. It measures 5" high, 2 3/4" wide and about 1 3/4" deep and has a satiny surface. The nose of the seal has a slight chip, visible in some of the photos. Very aesthetic in form, it is signed, with numbers also on the bottom. Part of a collection of Inuit sculpture, others listed in our catalog. This sculpture and the previous one in our catalog are similar in style and detail and could be by the same hand.|
