A finished carving of a narwhal, made by Inuit carver Willie Ishulutak from Iqaluit, Nunavut Territory, Canada. (Willie Ishulutak is featured in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) Carving is one of the few traditions of the Inuit that has made the leap into the wage-earning modern world. Willie says he can complete two or three pieces in a day, then sell them in the evening at bars and restaurants in Iqaluit for $100 ($93 USD) each, and sometimes more.
