A gray soapstone carving of a seal, carrying his seal trophy, signed "Jacopee" on the bottom, the official familiar small label of "Canada Eskimo Art" remaining. The dimensions are roughly 10 1/2" by 4 1/2" by 3", and weight fully 5 pounds. These carvings sold as tourist art at mid century remain popular, and a secondary market has evolved. This work is larger than many. The artist has reduced the familiar seal to a stylized, modern form. Condition is good with no chips, I do note a foreign reddish streak on the side as illustrated; could possibly be rubbed off with some effort.
