**Jimmy Iqaluq SIGNATURE Loon carving

Masterpiece Carving! Museum Quality Sculpture!

Inuit art enthusiasts need no introduction to Jimmy Iqaluq and his loons.

The first Inuit carving I purchased to sell was an Iqaluq loon.

I was grounded by a blizzard in Sanikiluaq.

I saw this exquisite loon carving at the hotel and asked who had carved this spectacular piece.

I was directed to Jimmy's home and well, as they say, the rest is history.

A depiction of Jimmy's loon was my logo for 14 years and I still am enthralled with every one of Jimmy's loons when I bring them into the Gallery.

Each bird is carved with love and precision.

Each bird is awe inspiring.

When you see them in person, you will understand what I mean.

Swimmer is a true heritage masterpiece. 

Jimmy is a Canadian Inuit Elite Master Carver.

This means that over his lifetime, Jimmy's talent for carving has become recognized around the world.

It is cherished for its beauty and historical value.

One of Jimmy's loons is on display in the Museum of Canadian Civilization in Ottawa, On.

Jimmy Iqaluq is one of the few Master Carvers from the pioneering generation who is still actively carving. 

If you don't have one of Iqaluq's loons in your collection, then from my perspective, your collection is not complete.

Swimmer is a perfect representative of Jimmy's loons.

The red eyes, the beautiful rounded head, the meticulously carved details of the carving.

The photos speak for themselves.

There is nothing quite as elegant and serene as a Jimmy Iqaluq loon.
