More Carvings


This is the pink carving that was visible behind yesterday's bear. The pink one features a narwhal with its huge horn and another creature which may have something to do with Inuit stories but I really don't know.  I like the little grey seal in the foreground.

So I looked it up:

"According to myths collected among the Inuit in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the narwhal was once a woman with long hair that she had twisted and plaited to resemble a tusk. When the woman’s blind son lashed her to a white whale, she was drowned, but transformed into a narwhal. The son felt some remorse that he had killed his mother, but he also believed that the matricide was justifiable because of her deceitfulness and cruelty." -- Smithsonian
