These are genuine walrus masks. They comprise of the nasal, premaxilla and maxilla bones, and may or may not include tusks. The price varies depending on size, weight and condition.
Walrus are legally hunted for food by the Inuit in northern Canada. The walrus hunt also offers a strong bonding experience for members of the community. Tusks and other walrus products that are not used in the local communities for arts and crafts are often available for sale in Canada or for export with the proper permits to most countries other than the United States. There is no commercial hunting of walrus. We buy our walrus products from Arctic Canada.
