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 carve some of his gorgeous bone sculptures.
He had a small piece of leftover whalebone and using his renowned skill and imagination, this endearing Inuk and Wolf was born!
The look on the Inuk's face says everything.
He is so pleased with himself. He has tamed this wild wolf and is riding him like a domesticated horse.
I actually think he is winking at us!
For his part, the wolf seems resigned to his fate.
Manasie has been commissioned by the Government of Canada to produce statue sized bone pieces that are valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars.
This bewitching bone sculpture is affordable.
To own a Manasie bone carving is a goal for many Inuit art collectors.
This is your chance to own a masterpiece by one of the top five Inuit artists in the world.
