Product Description

This beautiful piece - Polar Bear Claw with Scrimshaw is by Kungeekuk.  The image of the four walruses is very detailed and a lovely example of Kungeekuk's fine carving technique. Approx. 7" x 1.25"

POLAR BEAR CLAWS are harvested from bears taken by Inupiaq Eskimo Hunters. Unlike "head hunters", they use all the animal. It's meat is divided up in the community. The hide/teeth/claws /skull are used in artwork. Polar bears are never killed for pleasure or for a trophy. All those taken are tracked by the State gov. Inupiaq Eskimos of the North Slope are the only people in the U.S allowed to hunt the polar bear for subsistence purposes.
