Jamesie Pitseolak unknowingly pioneered yet a new generation of Inuit carvers. Life in the North, although very traditional at times, has also adapted very much so to Western society. The inspiration to craft subject matters that are everyday essentials for the Inuit will remain the legacy of Jamesie Pitseolak.
Influenced by Jamasie's amazing craftsmanship, Nuyalia Tunnillie wanted to create a piece that describes the demons he faces everyday, not only for him, but for many Inuit youth today; suicide.
The piece is so different and incredibly unique, but maintains its essential proportions and highly creative visage.
