These whale bone figures are beautiful little sculptures. The sculptor James Colbourne, or “Crow”, as he is known on the Great Northern Peninsula, has lived a nomadic life for 15 years across Canada. He excelled at carving the traditional Inuit way of life, using whale bone and caribou antler. It is rare to find traditional sculptures, in which the initial shape of the bone has been preserved. They are made with fossilized whale bone (about 100-300 years) marking the respect that the Inuit people accords to the living beings with which they live in harmony.
