Inuit Art - whale bone sculptures Mc Cord Museum

On a casual stroll through the Mc Cord museum in Montreal I stumbled upon many delightful facts! Whale bone art sculptures that depicted scenes from daily life were interesting mainly becauseof the medium. Phitography was not allowed but a few links will be posted shortly.
