Eskimo Ivory Owl with Extended Wings

This is an absolutely charming depiction of an owl.  It was originally on a small rectangular ivory base and represented an owl landing on a rock.  It was removed sometime in the past from the base.  It was collected between 1946 and 1949 at Pangnirtung in Baffin Island, Canada.  It is documented in a Canadian project recording more than 1400 Canadian Inuit sculptures in major private collections, a copy of the record will accompany the piece for the buyer's records.  It has a tiny break at the tip of the right wing.
