Beautifully sculpted piece by recognized sculptor Pudlalik Shaa. Pudlalik Shaa was influenced by his father's work. "I watched my father as he carved, he taught me. I did my first carving when I was twelve years old. It was a small seal, since then I have been carving, not all the time, but whenever I felt up to it." Impressed by his father's carving style, Pudlalik has developed similar themes in his own work such as walrus and drum dancers. Quoted from Cape Dorset Sculpture, Douglas & McIntyre, 2005.
