Ning Ashoona is the only active female carver in Cape Dorset.
Loons are her signature carving but I was able to obtain this incredible Swan carved by Ning for my clients.
Swans are large imposing birds. Ning captures the size of the wings with a subtle but effective bulge on the sides of the bird's torso.
The neck is also longer which distinguishes this piece from a goose. Its arched posture is exceptionally dramatic.
The stone colours are obviously one of the most magnificent features of the carving.
I see this sculpture and I can feel its quiet movement through the water.
This Swan is one of Ning's most beautiful carvings.
It has grace and elegance. A sublime addition to your collection or a thoughtful gift for a wedding, anniversary or birthday..
