Note: This work was acquired directly from the artist while he was in the Yellowknife Correctional Institute in early 1975. Henry was known for his highly realistic depictions of animals that possessed the accuracy and elegance of form only a great hunter could express through stone. This sculpture of an animated walrus is a superb example of Henry’s skill and begs to be viewed in person at all angles.
