The exhibit, showcasing such images as kayaks, walruses, seals and narwhal , reflects the close relationship between Inuit and water.
For centuries observers have been fascinated and mystified by the majestic spiral tusk grown by the small Arctic whale known as the narwhal .
His narwhal tusks stand in the attic near a loose pile of taxidermic heads.
Strictly speaking, the term should be applied only to the tusks of elephants, although a wider definition includes the teeth of the hippo, narwhal whale and the walrus.
Furthermore, unlike the curved teeth of elephants and warthogs, the narwhal tooth is nature's only straight tusk.
The tusk of whale or narwhal is spirally curved, and can measure up to 2.5 m in length.
‘The extraordinary tusk of the narwhal has fascinated and puzzled scientists for hundreds of years,’ according to the expedition's Web site.
A great white shark with a narwhal horn and legs seems to be attacking the glass.
Occasionally they even pluck a walrus, beluga whale, or narwhal from the watery depths below the pack ice.
The narwhal is a smaller whale that lives most of its life north of the Arctic Circle.
