Product Description:

This curious-looking walrus face sculpture was made in the 1980s by an Inuit (or Eskimo) artisan. Carved out of greenish gray soapstone, the face of the walrus has a stern look, and yet the details of the face, from puffy cheeks with tusks to flaring nostrils and wide-open eyes, are just stunning.

For the indigenous peoples of the Canadian arctic, the walrus is an interesting animal. Gregarious and physically social, the walrus is slow moving and clumsy on land, but it is at home in the water. Moving effortlessly in the water, the walrus can teach us to “ride the emotional” waves inevitable in our lives, to pick our battles wisely when in defensive mode, and, that as long as we are close to the people we love, to feel protected from a cold and lonely heart.

The little, flat sculpture is in good vintage condition. With only some minor scratches and nicks to the stone. The backside has a sticker indicating that the piece is Eskimo-carved from Canada. A stock number has also been carved into it.

This walrus face sculpture can be used as home décor or, as did the original owner, a paperweight for one’s office. It would make for a wonderful gift or addition to a collection of First Peoples art.
