Inuit Soapstone Carving

I spied this piece of Inuit art in a second hand shop. His face is a little dented and believe it or not, when I found it, his head was painted bright red!

But with a little bit of paint stripper and a good rub, this seal is almost as good as new and has a happy home with me. Not bad for $3.99, eh?

$3.99?? I know you'd pay more like $399 at an Ottawa art shop (like Snow Goose.) What a great find!!

Such a beautiful little sculpture. I am amazed that anyone would paint his head red. Good job on cleaning him.
