Masterpiece carving! Museum quality Sculpture! Magnificent Movement!
Did you know that the Inuit love their fiddles?
I look at this Tunnillie sculpture and honestly, I could see the bow start to move across the strings and my foot began to tap!
Only a few artists have this kind of visceral effect on the viewer.
Matt Tunnillie is one of these rare and exceptional artists.
This Inuit fiddler has so much personality. He is large and square and proudly holds his fiddle high. His upper body is much larger than his legs giving him a bit of a cartoonish appearance. But this Inuk is a serious muscian.
I love how big his fingers are! How can such a big hand wield a somewhat delicate bow without breaking it?
This scene has a magical quality that ranks it as one of Tunnillie's most delightful works of art.
This is someone's opportunity to own a timeless Inuit sculpture from a respected and talented carver.
