Osuitok Ipeelee carved relatively few animal-animal transformations. Combining a walrus and bird is a compositional challenge, which Osuitok solved by eliminating the bodies of both subjects, representing the walrus solely by its head, and the bird by its wings and feet. The thin, rippling wings are a tour de force of carving.
