This is a stunning sculpture by Alec Lawson Tuckatuck, a young Inuit artist from Kujjuaraapik. Tuckatuck, who is descended from a line of fine artists, is depicting a defining moment, when a hunter has harpooned a beluga whale. The hunter is holding on for dear life as the whale attempts its escape. The "Will" refers to the Inuit people's determination and persistence to survive in a harsh and dangerous environment. They will do whatever is necessary to survive, often placing themselves in perilous situations to feed themselves and their families. Carved from alabaster and soapstone. 17" high x 10" wide x 4 3/4" deep.$3,950.00
