Noah Nowrakudluk, Hunter in kayak with seal and walrus head, c. 1960-1969
Stone, 2 3/4 x 13 x 3 1/2 in. (7 x 33 x 8.9 cm)
This is a fine example of Arctic Quebec "slice of life" carvings. The hunter has had an excellent day -- a walrus head floats beside the kayak, and he carries a seal on the kayak's rear deck. Arctic Quebec artists favored subjects drawn from everyday life for their carvings, and a grouping of five or six vividly shows the range of activities in camp life.
