Kelly Etidloie has presented us with a very unusual visitor to the Far North!
I believe this is the first Inuit penguin carving I have seen.
I love Penguin's posture. His large feet and slightly awkward looking front flippers give him a cartoonish demeanour which is endearing.
Penguin is carved from an incredibly beautiful piece of deep dark serpentine stone.
The beautiful polish and shine on this bird highlights its soft flowing lines and enchanting face.
