This is your chance to own a very rare masterpiece by the internationally acclaimed Looty Pijammin.
In this enigmatic work, Lootie achieves the spiritedness of the dancing bear through delicate balance, crisp lines and an overall fluidity that sparks an electric vibrancy from head to toe.
This stone emulates and defines marble stone at its finest. The visage of white marble opulates and punctuates the piece into a level of surreal triumph. The highlight of this piece is exclaimed to the stunning embroidery master crafted throughout. This establishes a gateway to a euphoric dynamic where the sculpture is completed to a degree of perfection rarely ever seen.
Lootie's fame reaches to a global audience. Please see his biography on wikipedia. Among his numerous merits, he was commissioned by the Canadian government to make a gateway statue for his Hamlet. His famous statue received much recognition from the CBC.
Grise Fiord is located in the high Arctic. Looty is one of two artists from this Hamlet. It is one of the most isolated communities in the world. The Inuit who were relocated here in the 1940's originally came from Inukjuak, QC. His famous statue tells a story of the migrants who were relocated here by force from the Federal Government.
