U.S. buyers cannot purchase this piece due to whale bone restrictions from Canadian Government Customs. We ship only to a Canadian address.
I asked Manasie to make some of his gorgeous bone sculptures.
Using some leftover baleen (whalebone) and the magic in his chisel, he created this Shaman Owl.
One more example of Manasie's talent and genius as a Premier Master Carver. See our communique Manasie Akpaliapik Exhibition - This Weekend.
Manasie has taken a single vertebrae from a whale and converted into a primitive-styled Owl.
This carving is simple with a childlike demeanour.
It is also is very affordable which is appealing to the Inuit art enthusiast who has longed to own a Manasie bone piece.
