The artist is avid sportsman and enjoys hunting and trapping, two themes frequent in much of his work.

The carvings of Peter Itukalla are amazing for their animation and lifelike qualities. His seals have a special lifelike and fluidity of motion that is hard to match in comparison to other Inuit artists.

Another great detail are the mouths of his bears, many times with each tooth and mouth muscle depicted.
