This absolutely charming Male and Female torso carving is reported to be from around 1965, made by an unknown artist, probably from Povungnituk.

This piece came to us from a private collector who said that the torsi were part of a collection of Inuit Art that was on display at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto in the 1960’s.

We haven’t been able to authenticate the story, but the quality of the carvings is exquisite, evocative of an important relationship between the two subjects. The pieces have a rich patina, and reflect a long and cared-for history.
