Note: Reminiscent of Ullulaq’s Two Shamans Wrestling illustrated on page 156 of Darlene Coward Wight’s Art and Expression of the Netsilik, it could be an extension of the same struggle. This work is carved from two pieces of bone and expertly fit together to create the feel of a jumble of two inseparable bodies.
