These Ulu earrings are crafted in the shape of a traditional Inuit cutting tool, with a blade made from walrus ivory, and a handle from caribou antler.

Orland Hansen (Simutuk) was born in Aklavik, Northwest Territories. His father Hans came from Denmark, and his mother was Inuvialuit, whose family originated from Alaska. While growing up with his family at their bush camp Orland learned to carve, mostly driftwood. Orland started carving soapstone in 1992 and in a short period of time became an accomplished artist. Orland now carves various types of stone, bone, horn and antler, and often combines these materials together in an innovative way.
