Inuit Artist: Johnysa Mathewsie

Community: Cape Dorset, NU
This is a beautiful goose from Cape Dorset directly from Johnysa Mathewsie. What is so special about this carving is the striking dark color of the head.
This goose is finished in a beautiful green serpentine stone which accentuates and further enhances its divine imagery into an element of sophistication.
The tenuous embroidery of feathers, atomic proportions and exquisite beauty have allowed Mathewsie's Geese to be celebrated among the avant garde circles of Inuit art. Solo works and publications by him have been adopted and praised worldwide.
This piece comes with an Igloo Tag, Certified of Authenticity, and is signed by the artist on the bottom in Inuktitut.
