I love Duty for two reasons.
The Gjoa Haven serpentinite stone is so beautifully portrayed in this carving.
Serpentite is the predominant stone in the remote Gjoa Haven region.
The black matte colour freckled with soft medium green is the perfect medium for this Gjoa Haven piece.
Second, I am charmed by Duty's steadfastness. His stubborn nature brings us peace knowing that he will always light the way.
The repetition of the body segments creates a pleasing mathematically precise symmetry.
Our Inukshuk has the aura of a science fiction robot slowly marching across the remote Arctic plains.
On a mission.
Alone but unafrraid.
He is “the stone man who points the way”.
