Back in April, 2020, we launched a rare and exceptional collection of Toonoo Sharky pieces. These sculptures were carved when Inuit artists were locked down inside their homes during the early months of the Covid pandemic. Only a few artists had available material to carve which resulted in the production of a few select sculptures.
One of those artists was Master Carver Toonoo Sharky.
We felt compelled to record this historical global moment and compiled a special booklet documenting our “Covid Collection”. Any collector who purchased a piece from the Covid Collection received the booklet and a provenance for the sculpture documenting its unique story.
In any event, the Toonoo Sharky pieces we are adding today (January 1st, 2021) were carved in April, 2020 and are from the same collection as our Covid Collection. They were previously in the hands of another gallery but have made their way home to us.
Happily, through a twist of fate, we can offer our clients PART 2 of the Covid Collection.
When you purchase any of these five historic Toonoo Sharkey carvings, you will receive a Provenance in the form of a Booklet outlining the unique circumstances surrounding these sculptures.
These Covid Collection pieces will sell quickly.
They have historical significance AND their diminutive size makes for an appealing price point.
