Walruses are large "sprawling" animals.
Their hides are rippled with folds of thick fat.
The walrus loves to bask in the sun on the Arctic ice.
This is a perfect walrus sculpture.
They don't get better than this.
Jimmy Iqaluq is a legend.
Every one of his sculptures represents decades of devotion to his art.
I love this Iqaluq walrus.
The signature red eyes, the fishing line whiskers and the meticulously carved claws and tusks.
Only Jimmy inserts individual whiskers into the muzzle of a walrus.
Jimmy is a meticulous and fastidious carver.
His devotion to detail is one of the reasons Iqaluq is one of Canada's top five Inuit carvers.
This is a brilliantly polished and beautifully detailed walrus by world-famous Jimmy Iqaluq.
