Product description

This blanket toss sculpture represents and captures joy and community. The blanket toss has been used for over 100 years by the Inuit people. Seal or walrus skin would be used to make a human powered trampoline to launch a person up to 20 feet in the air to gain more visibility of the horizon for hunting! This speaks to the resourcefulness and ingenuity of the Inuit people. Now, the blanket toss is a cherished tradition and celebration. There are even competitions with tricks and flips.

Sculptures are hand carved by Eddie Lee in his Pacific Northwest studio. Every carving is one of a kind, individually carved. The sculpture you see pictured is the exact one you will receive. Every fine art piece is hand signed by the artist and includes a certificate of authenticity, which describes the art piece and has a short biography of master sculptor, Eddie Lee.

The first time that we saw this Blanket Toss sculpture, we loved it and thought how unique it was. We are great admirers of Eddie Lee’s work and have met his beautiful daughter, Kathy, when we visited their store in Ketchikan. It has always been one of our favorite places to visit. Their store is like stepping inside a museum with so many unique and intricate beautiful carvings. Kathy was always very gracious and welcoming to customers. Her friendliness comes through online now as well. After many visits to their website, we decided to purchase the Blanket Toss and we couldn’t be happier. We love looking at it throughout the day and knowing the story behind its sculptor adds an extra level of joy. The Blanket Toss arrived in perfect condition thanks to the incredible packing job by Kathy and her father. It will always bring a smile to our faces and remind us of our in-person trips to Alaska
