Arviat, Nunavut Territory, Canada

Jacob Irkok began carving in 1962; he recalls that his first sculpture, carved in antler, depicted a caribou and wolf fighting.* He still carves in antler, but also in stone. Irkok’s wife, Eulalie Utuuyak Irkok, is also a carver. Their son, Jack Irkok is also a carver in Arviat.
