It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!
This is a beautiful rendition of a Beluga Whale by Charlie Ookpik.
The sculpture is elevated on a "rock" so the viewer can admire the graceful lines of the whale.
The stone is flawless. I love the large tail but what is very special is the look on this whale's face.
She (?) has a high forehead and a demure beak of a mouth. Her round white eyes are shy and modest.
Watching her swim away, you feel a bit sad that you won't see her again.
This would be an extraordinary gift for a wedding, especially to someone who is new to Inuit art because this sculpture has such universal appeal.
