You may remember my attempt this year to sew my own avataq. It ended up being rather small, but at least my daughter thinks it’s cute, and I could roll with it.
I was watching a film on traditional Inuit living and hunting skills and grabbed this screen shot of the hunter’s avataq. One word – “BIG”. By my estimate the Brooks commercial replica avataq is about half the size of this one.

Follow this link to watch the movie if you are interested.
