This dancing walrus is one of many sculptures by Inuit carver Aqjangajuk (Axangayu) Shaa. Represented by the Spirit Wrestler Gallery in Vancouver, BC. Sorry for the seemingly dashed-off post, but I wanted to share this fun work wit readers of the blog. I need to look into shamanistic native sculpture and the meaning of the walrus within this form of art.
