Walrus Shaman

 View more work by Jerome Saclamana

Reflecting the native belief in the connectivity of all things, the shaman's body takes on the form of a walrus reclining on some rocks or perhaps ice. The feather in his mouth is an artistic representation of a shamanistic principle that the mouth is a gateway for the supernatural.  The shaman/walrus body is carved from a richly colored piece of fossil walrus ivory and is held onto a whalebone base with a baleen peg.
