Inuit Pottery with Sperm Whale Design
The Inuit have not made many pottery works of art. This is a rare older vessel, oblong-shaped with a round opening on top. Light brown with some glaze (drips evident). Etched into the clay on both sides is two sperm whales facing each other with 3 triangles above that could represent the sails of a ship. This is a very delicate piece. Est. 1970 or earlier.
Dimensions: 11"/28cm x 7"/18cm x 3.5"/9cm
