You know what I Love about Inuit Art? Just when I think I saw the nicest piece ever in my life... I am bemused, surprised and astonished to come across an even nicer one.
This one is the very latest to do that, feeding into my heroin-like addiction - by Kelly Etidloie.
This is an ecstatic communion between both critter and walrus.
Quite frankly, one of the nicest pieces we at the gallery have ever come across. I don't normally like to buy Ivory due to the many restrictions that the substance entails (restrictive exportation permits outside of Canada, etc...), however, when I saw this piece, my heart skipped a beat and I had to have it.
What captivated me to this piece were its alien like character. It possesses an extraordinary post modernist bohemian feel that can easily feel at home in a high rise condo downtown Toronto or Tribeca NYC.
For these reasons alone, I put this piece into the masterpiece category and I was very lucky to stumble upon it.
This piece is for sale to Canadian residents only. Due to its Ivory substance, this walrus tusk is restricted for sale to all residents outside of Canada.
