Royal Ontario Museum: Inuit Carvings in Ivory

An exploration of ivory carvings made by Inuit artists. This comprehensive site does more than showcase works by master carvers; it also tells the underlying stories that tie the ivories to the culture and environment of the Inuit. You can learn about the animals from which ivory is harvested; Inuit use of ivory as tools, weapons, amulets, and symbolic icons; and related topics. Videos and rotatable images for 360-degree viewing of sculptures enrich the site.
