Markossie Tooktoo has carved this wonderful loon. The stone used in the piece is argillite, but if you look closely it is also speckled with fool’s gold along the back of the loon. The etched detail in this piece is lovely and the red eyes are striking. A fantastic piece of Inuit art representing a bird famous throughout Canada.
