I love Drummer Boy's simplicity and innocence.

His nose is held high as he sings.

Bong, bong, bong!

He strikes his drum with enthusiasm.
Drum dancers play an important role in Inuit culture.

Through song and dance, they teach history to the next generations.

Drummer Boy is a one of a kind carving.

Have you ever seen a bear who is a drum dancer?!

And Louie has dressed Drummer Boy in a warm embroidered jumper, a pair of pants and sturdy boots.

Another unique feature of this sculpture.

This proud bear is absorbed in his craft.

He knows he is loved and respected.

Drummer Boy is a rare and enchanting piece.

Always the unexpected from the Gjoa Haven carvers!
