Description

This is an eye-catching piece of Inuit art by Noah Nuna. The shape of the carving grabs your attention, and the lines are very pleasing. This is an early piece, believed to be carved in 1973. At that point the community Noah Nuna is from was called Frobisher Bay. Today we know it as Iqaluit. This is a stunning piece from an early carver.
