Inuit art: Transformation Spirit
Inuit Artist: Alex Alikashusk
Size: 11" tall, 3" wide, 3" deep
Community: Whale Cove, NU
Transformation Spirit is one of Alikashusk’s most endearing transformation pieces.
Transformation pieces are a unique subject matter within Inuit art.
Alikashusk is one of Inuit art’s greatest and most respected sculptors. Starting in the late 1990’s, Alikashusk’s work appeared in innumerable exhibitions. He is currently displayed at the WAG (Winnipeg Art Gallery).
Alikashusk’s experimentation with spiritual transformations is applauded by serious art enthusiasts. This particular Transformation spirit is rendered in fervent charcoal and tangerine stone. Her face is serene. She tips her head to the side and closes her eyes... waiting. Her mystique is haunting.
This carving would be an exceptional gift for the incomparable person in your life.
