Joannie is a brother of Lucassie Ikkidluaq (known for muskox sculptures). Both brothers are world famous Inuit artists.
Joannie can carve just about anything, but his signature sculptures are large bears with teeth, like this one.
Very big and impressive. Every inch is refined to perfection.
The teeth are made out of caribou antler.
