Chupak Fossil Walrus Jaw Bear Hunting Seal

Member's Price:
$504.00 - $567.00

Chivly Chup, known in the art world as Chupak, escaped Cambodia's brutal Khmer Rouge regime after the death of his parents. A 12 year old in a Thai refugee camp, Chupak taught himself how to carve and sold the sculptures to help support his remaining family.

Sponsored by an Oregon family at the age of 17, Chupak became fascinated with Native culture, in particular Native Alaskan, and began using the landscape and wildlife as inspiraton for his carving. Today Chupak lives in Juneau and works and teaches from his studio, Chupak Carving Arts.

Fossilized walrus jaw bone. 11" length.
