Carved with great skill and refinement, this sculpture brings to mind the work of Nunavut masters; Jimmy Iqaluq, Pitseolak Qimirpik and Napatchie Sharky. The etched-in feathers coalesced into the pressed stone transform this piece from rigidity to life.
The tenuous detailing of the feathers, its atomic proportions, and its exquisite beauty have endeared Etidloie's loons and have made his pieces celebrated among the avant-garde circles of Inuit art. It is no surprise that solo works and publications by Etidloie have been adopted and praised worldwide.
