Inuit camp scene with a man, swan, fish, igloo and kayak mounted on a raised base, mostly carved from antler. Featuring a fanciful scene showing a man waving a rectangular piece of net at a large swan flying above a big fish lying on the ground. Other carvings include an igloo with a gun resting against it, a kayak with a float and line, large knife, paddle and harpoon on deck. The human figure has seal fur around the hood opening, bottom edge and cuffs of the parka and top edges of the mukluks. The bird is mounted on a peg inserted into an irregular shaped chunk of bone. Except for this and the igloo, all of the other pieces are carved from antler. These pieces are mounted onto a large somewhat rectangular slab of caribou antler that sets on four antler pegs inserted into the bottom. Carved by Klengenberg, Inuit, Tuktoyaktuk. Deeply inscribed on the bottom side of the base "MADE BY KLENGENBERG, TUK-TUK N.W.T. X0E 1C0, 1981."
