Billy Merkosak is one of my favourite Inuit carvers.
He never fails to meet my expectations.
Case in point.....this stunning Shaman mask.
Did you know that the word "shaman" means literally "one who knows".
An Inuit shaman acts as a religious leader or healer and possesses mysterious, powerful and sometimes superhuman abilities.
Sometimes, Inuit Shamans act as an intermediary between the natural and supernatural world.
My immediate reaction to this Shaman is happiness.
Yes. This face makes me feel happy, Energized.
If feels like any moment, our Shaman will put his arm around my should and call me "friend".
Is it the half closed twinkling eyes or the toothy grin?
How is Billy able to tranform my mood with a piece of whale bone and a chisel?
This Shaman will make a change in your life everyday. All you have to do is look in his direction.
