Carved from one piece of old whalebone, with inlaid baleen for eyes and nostrils, this walrus is elegant in its simplicity and form. Measuring 6" long and 1 3/4" high, it is light in weight due to the porous nature of old whalebone. This is a fine example of Eskimo/Inuit carving, and it is strikingly well sculpted, clearly utilizing the natural shape of the bone, and creating the tusks out of the single piece of bone.
