Arctic Journey

Price: $10,995.00

This unique carving is created in an ancient rib bone and mounted on a fossil walrus jawbone both aged at over 700 years.

I wanted to retain the natural unpolished beauty of the weathered bone and tell the story of the native species that still exist today in this northern wilderness. So many are threatened by the changing climate and over hunting including the right whale, narwhale, polar bear, arctic fox and others. Details in this carving invite the viewer to look closely and discover the deeper layers of the bone structure. Birds flying, an arctic hare, ptarmigan, raven, the moon and sun, clouds and a life-giving river that all weave their way throughout the scene and create a sense of the interconnection of all things.

This is an extremely rare and special piece.

Size: 29" x 14.5" x 9"

The Stellar Sea Cow was a marine mammal similar to the manatee but the size of a small whale. It was discovered in 1761 by German Zoologist George Stellar who traveled on expeditions to discover new lands. They lived in the sub arctic waters off the coast of Alaska and the Bering Sea in abundance until becoming extinct from over hunting. The last Sea Cow ever seen was in 1768 and recorded in drawings. Their bones have been found in ancient Yupik Eskimo villages on St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea.
