"Nanuq"

Carved Walrus Ivory and Whalebone. Polar Bears and Brown or Grizzly Bears.

Polar Bear or "Nanuq" in the Siberian Yup'ik language.  The Polar Bear was symbolic of a powerful hunter, as in the old days the only way to take a Polar Bear was with a spear.  It was considered the Father of the Yup'ik people and the source of their instincts.  Polar Bear Claws were mounted close to the entrance of their house to ward off evil spirits and they also had therapeutic qualities such as a cure for a headache.
