Winged spirit

This is an Inuit whalebone carving for sale on eBay that cannot enter the U.S. because exportation of marine mammal art is illegal, according to the seller. That probably explains why this fine looking carving, priced at $39.99, has zero bids. The Eskimo artist is Jacob Kuluguqtuq, born in 1924. A winged spirit is a creature with a human face, wings and small extended tail.
