Canadians have an enduring love for the Beluga whale.
Belugas are one of the most recognizable and popular whales because of their “white” skin, large bulging forehead and ‘smiling’ upturned mouth.
They live primarily in areas with Arctic sea ice.
Mosesses lives in the isolated community of Kimminut where whale hunting is a necessity in order for the isolated Inuit community to survive.
His love for this mammal is obvious.
There is no denying the technical mastery of this piece.
GreThis beluga emotes raw emotion. It is typical of the emotive sculptures carved by the Kimmirut artists.
This whale is large and spectacular.
It would delight most Inuit art enthusiasts but in particular, the animal lover or environmentalist would cherish this piece.
