Inuit art: Hunter with Husky Dog
Inuit Artist: Jimmy Iqaluq
Size: 12" long, 8" high, 6" wide
Community: Sanikiluaq, NU
This is a historical and current rendition of life in the North for the Inuit of the past and today.
The stoic and opulent pallid stone lends itself to the terse lines and flawless symmetry. This howls to the conclusion of a masterpiece with bounteous sashay and audacity.
Done in a smooth and refined argelite stone, Jimmy persist an endearing sense of perfection while achieving a raw calmness of savagery.
Jimmy Iqaluq (1947 - )
