Inuit art: Seal
Inuit Artist: Louie Makittuq
Size: 7" high, 6" wide, 4.5" deep
Community: Gjoa Haven, NU
This sweet small seal is scenting the air, basking on his ice floe.
Many of us adore the Arctic seal. We recognize pictures of the Harp seal, and the Harbour seal.
Their cute teddy bear faces and their thick cuddly coats enchant us.
Louie has carved a perfect small seal with fastidious details such as his facial features, his fins and his tail.
The serpentinite stone so common to Gjoa Haven is the perfect medium for this popular Arctic mammal.
This piece would be a wonderful gift to a child who loves animals.
