Hunter with Bow & Arrow
EXHIBITION:BONE & STONE: An Alaskan Group Exhibition
The detail in this piece by Nunguk is unmatched. The hunter is carved in his characteristic simple, yet expressive style. The bow is a piece of baleen with a delicate string. The dagger sheath is stitched leather with a removable fossil ivory dagger inside. Above his head the hunter holds an intricately carved arrow made of both fresh and fossil walrus ivory.
