Inuit art lovers crave the bone carvings of Billy Merkosak!
Have you feasted your eyes on Billy's Drum Dancer?
What were the words that came to mind when you first saw "Billy"?
For me, it was prayerful, grateful, euphoria and devout.
Then I saw the carving as simply a piece of spectacular art.
The words that came to mind were ingenious, ground breaking, beyond beautiful and then JOY!
So many Inuit sculptures are joyful. You've heard me say it many times.
BUT this piece!?
Billy has found within himself, the skill and ingenuity to release joy from a piece of bone.
The Inuit carvers often say that the medium (stone, bone) tells them what to carve.
I'd say Billy Merkosak was listening!
