This is a great piece by Mary Alaku, an Inuit artist from Ivujuvik. This piece is quite different from many of the other carvings in our collection. Alaku’s piece is a wonderful scene etched into the stone, displaying a carving style more similar to drawing than sculpting. By etching her design into the stone we are given a glimpse of village life. This is a gorgeous piece that is intriguing from every angle.
