A interesting Repulse Carving

Hello Everyone,
This is a very interesting piece we got here in Repulse. The hunter and the Beluga whale are carved from Narwhal tusk, and have very interesting lines as they were carved from poor pieces of tusk, making it more interesting in our opinion. They are pegged to a piece of green soapstone using caribou bone pegs, the harpoon is also made from caribou bone.The tie line is made from dental floss, wintergreen I believe.
This is our favorite of the pieces we have gained on this leg of our journey. The carving stands about 4.5 inches tall
Take Care
