Dancing Mother and Child
Figurine, carved in stone, of a dancing mother and child. The figure has only one body but two heads and one arm. The figure is standing on its left foot with its right leg bent underneath and leaning to its left. The face on the left side has two round ivory eyes with black inlay pupils, two circular carved out nostrils, and a frowning mouth with jagged teeth and deep indentations around the face. The right side face is turned to the right and has similar facial features to the other face except for a carved out ear and an open mouth with jagged ivory teeth. The single arm comes out from under the right face’s chin and it is holding a curved ivory object. The figure also has carved lines representing hair across the top of the sculpture.
A depiction of the legend of Lumaaq, the story of the first narwhal. There are two figures, a whale and a woman attached to a piece of pronged antler. The antler represents the undulating forms of the water from the legend. The woman depicted is Lumak’s grandmother, shown as a beautiful young woman whose lower half has already begun to transform into a narwhal. She is holding onto a sinew harness which is attached to a beluga type whale. The whale is carved in ivory and looks realistic.
