Alaska Ivory showcases the finest examples of the traditional Alaska Native art form of walrus ivory carving. Celebrating the artistic genius
and indomitable spirit of the native peoples of Alaska, these unique carvings bring to life the animals and culture of these far northern lands. The culmination of over thirty years of carving experience, each piece becomes an embodiment of both the artist’s own personal history as a child growing up on the banks of the Yukon river and the influences of his Athabascan forebears.
Master Carver Leonard Savage’s meticulous attention to detail and realism is balanced by his unsurpassed ability to breathe life into the medium, thereby creating works of art which blend traditional subjects with contemporary styling. Since his teen years, Mr. Savage, a self-
taught artist, has chronicled the history and culture of the
Alaska Native people through his work.
Through his carvings, he has preserved the ceremonies and activities of their lives, and the animals central to that lifestyle, not only
through the carvings themselves, but also through the very acting of carving, an art form now practiced by only a few remaining Alaska
Mr. Savage is pleased to be able to offer these pieces
for sale to not only collectors of fine art, but also to those interested in the cultures of Alaska.
