This carving was done by Moses Tuka Qinuajua.
This carving is a combined carving of tooth and stone.
There is a large narwhal tooth done in scrimshaw. Moses has captured images of Igloos, Narwhal, Seals, Walrus, Inuit Hunters and Fishermen, Birds and of Inukshuks.
The tooth measures approximately 59” high. It sits in a base of a carved piece of Serpentine Stone. The carving it sits in depicts two walrus. It is signed and dated on the right hand side of the base.
It is possible to remove the tooth from the base for transport.
There is a 9” polar bear carved out of Serpentine Stone, clinging to the top of the tooth. The bear comes off for transport.
The base is approximately 14” wide x 12” deep and is about 6” high including the walrus carvings.
This is a very impressive piece. A collectors pride!
Unique, one of a kind.
