Welcome to Hunter on Ice, where we examine the traditional seal hunt that is essential to the lives of the Inuit people. Through the story of Maquinna, his family and fellow tribe members, we will see how the seal hunt is carried out, and its value to the Inuit people of the North. The models on this web page were all captured using new image-based techniques to faithfully digitally reproduce the real physical heritage objects.
