Some of the greatest works of Inuit sculptures defy analysis.

Sometimes adjectives used to describe the piece can be contradictory.

For instance: this Ashoona bear is strong AND winsome

Quirky AND refined.

Monumental AND endearing.

Brown Sugar has all these characteristics. 

He is perfectly balanced.

His cuddly demeanour resembles a Teddy Bear.

You want to put your arms out and pull him to you.

Rather than a plain rich brown serpentine stone, this stone is completely speckled with a caramel colour.

This speckling creates a 3D effect that gives the piece even more mass.

Do you know someone who marches to the beat of their own drum that would love this enchanting individualist?
