This is a timeless piece by an artist from the very remote hamlet of Igloolik. Igloolik is one of the smaller communities that make Inuit art. The Kitikmeot region is renowned for its grotesque style.
This work's poignancy can be partly explained by its relative rawness; in the sense it resembles some of the great emotive sculptures created by artists from the isolated community of Igloolik.
