TINY TUNIIT CARVINGS
TINY TUNIIT CARVINGS OF ANIMALS
Tuniit, the people who lived in Nunavut before Inuit, are famous for their tiny and beautiful carvings made out of wood, walrus ivory, and other materials.
PI/KHS research has recovered the largest set of Tuniit carvings from the Kitikmeot area. It includes a rare, perfect fish carving in ivory. Also, a harpoon head for which the tip has been carved into a bird head, which Elders identified as a King Eider.
