Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
This gorgeous Baleen whale bone was carved into this magnificent Walrus King by Master Carver Jaco Ishulutak.
The more time you spend searching every nook and cranny of the piece, the more you will come to adore the beauty of this whale bone.
Yes! It's hard to comprehend BUT this walrus is a piece of a whale! And the life of that whale will live on in this stunning sculpture.
Resting on a floe of limestone “ice” this mammoth sea mammal is poised and powerful. His strength flows through his ungainly muscular body and out through his formidable tusks.
These tusks are his weapon. With them, he inflicts death onto his prey
Jaco is one of Canada's five Elite Master Carvers.
I have seen many memorable walrus carvings over the years but Jaco's signature style is incomparable.
