This is a interesting carving we got while in Baker Lake. It was a strange one, when it was first brought to ou door I turned it down. I just didn't get it, I showed it to Melissa and she had the same reaction. I told the carver I just didn't get it and wasn't interested. Its the same carver as the Polar bear pictured above. Over the next couple of days, it was strange Melissa and I discussed this carving over and over, till I saw the carver in the store and I asked him to bring it back, we wanted it. Its grown on us and is one of our favorites, but I still don't get it. Its a Inuk face atop a flexible leg with a human ankle and a animals foot. The quality of the stone is better than any of our others though. Go figure. This is about 6 inches high.
