(Shown in photographs) l believe this to be an earlier, possibly first generation example of this particular carving. The kayak seems to be made of beech wood instead of the more commonly seen teak.
It also is not impressed Norway, but still retains its original red, white and blue MADE IN NORWAY label. I also believe the string may be original. It measures the 15-3/4 long by 1-5/8 wide and 3 tall. Great early example of this mid century modern master wood carvers work.The item "Vintage Arne Tjomsland Carved Inuit Kayak Made In Norway Label Mid Century" is in sale since Tuesday, October 13, 2020.
