Masterpiece Carving!  Museum quality Sculpture!

This is a historically significant piece.

Nuveeya was a pioneer of the Inuit art community and a highly decorated artist in terms of awards and recognition. His work is displayed in The WAG and the National Art Gallery in Ottawa.

He was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts which celebrates the achievements of Canada's most accomplished cultural producers.

He was a member of an elite group of Inuit carvers which included  Axangayuk Shaa, Elijah Michael, and Parr Parr.

Maneater is a magnificent vintage piece whose majesty is evident even on first glance. 

I am overwhelmed with the skill of Ipellie's skill and his imagination. 

I look at this man's face and see strength but also tenderness.  This is perhaps the most exquisite face I have ever seen among Inuit carvings.

This is truly a masterpiece!
