This is a gorgeous seal. The etched in marks on its back side add an amazing depth to this piece. This seal is wonderfully carved and is done in a beautiful white limestone.
This piece comes from a very remote Inuit community called Igloolik. It is a community that is very isolated from the other northern communities. Artists in Igloolik have a very unique style as they focus on realism when making their sculptures and the stone they use is rarely polished and have a dry flat finish.
What also makes Esa Kripanik's carvings so distinct are the engravings often found on their sides.
