15" Kayak with Father and Sons by Jimmy Iqaluq
can be reserved, please contact us
Inuit art: Kayak
Inuit Artist: Jimmy Iqaluq
Size: 15 inches long, 4" high, 3" wide (paddle is 12" wide). Weight: 4 lbs.
This Kayak is a centrepiece for our Inuit art gallery. It was carved by the world famous Jimmy Iqaluq (top five Inuit artists in Canada). I have had other kayaks by Jimmy in the past, and of course, he does them better than anyone else.
With that said, this particular one is special. Three hunters (father and his two sons) riding on the kayak with one of them holding a bear cub is nothing short of spectacular.
It is a museum quality piece.
There are several tones of argellite stone. Light greens, pale greens and dark black. The three combined add for a dramatic and wonderfully contrasted finish.
