Did you know at this time of year (April to June) is when the Inuit go Ice fishing? It is warm enough to escape the blistering cold, and is also cold enough for the ice to stay frozen.
This is one of our favorite pieces in the gallery. We have never seen an artist do a piece like this before.
The fish dangling from the ice below, while the friendly fisherman looks through the ice hole makes this an interesting piece.
