Inuit art: Mother Loon with a Wing up and a Baby on the Back
Inuit Artist: Jimmy Iqaluq

This is another outstanding mother loon and her baby by world famous Inuit artist Jimmy Iqaluq from Sanikiluaq.
This mother loon has her left wing up and her left foot is carved on the side (it gives this loon more movements as opposed when both feet are hidden under the tail).
The eyes are red (they are inserted, carved out of a different rock, Jimmy gets this red rock from a seashore)
To give a brief overview of this sculpture is like trying to describe why a beautiful woman is so beautiful. The picture speaks for itself. What I can say is this carving is from Jimmy Iqaluq. He is famous for his loons as one sits in Ottawa's national art museum of fine arts. He is among the 5 elite Inuit artists in Canada and has exhibitions that have toured all over the world. His pieces are valued very highly.
This carving is in perfect condition, brand new. The carving is signed on the bottom and comes with an igloo tag.
