Inuit Carvings from Alaska

The Eskimos are one of the few people who can legally use walrus ivory. They collect this ivory from the walruses that they hunt for food, and from it make beautiful carvings. These carvings are works of art, prized by collectors. Other materials sometimes incorporated into the carvings are whale baleen, fossilized ivory, fossilized sea cow rib, and moose bone.
