Walrus Mask with Scrimshawed Seals, Whales and Walrus.
“When we think of Boyd, we think of the knowledge he had, the knowledge of his culture and the love he had for keeping that alive,” his family wrote for his obituary.
This mask itself is 21" from top to tips and is mounted on a 26" long stained wood plank. The tusks are removable, held in place by screws. Mariann told me just now she thinks this one is exceptional, I agree. Shipping is included.
All the walrus masks we sell are from the 1900’s and are being reintroduced into the market, they are decades old, always purchased in the lower 48 from previous owners. We do not buy any of these in Alaska where they are still being hunted for food. Some of ours are pre 1972 and others have native Alaskan scrimshaw, both are legal to buy and sell. No one is hunting walrus to supply us with these; they are all “recycled”.
