Eskimo Ivory Howling Husky

What a great unusual piece.  A carved walrus ivory husky sitting on its haunches with its red open mouth howling at the moon (or something), its inlaid eyes intent and unblinking.  I think it must be an old dog because it's top and lower right canine teeth are broken (as can be seen in the pictures.)
