The tenuous embroidery of feathers, atomic proportions, and exquisite beauty, have endeared Etidloie's loons to be celebrated among the avant garde circles of Inuit art. Solo works and publications by him have been adopted and praised worldwide.
Carved with great skill and refinement, this sculpture brings to mind the work of Nunavut masters Jimmy Iqaluq, Pitseolak Qimirpik and Napatchie Sharky. The embodiment of the etched-in feathers coalesced into the pressed stone transform this piece from rigid state - to life.
Etulu Etilodie is world famous for his loons. Any loons by him are unmistakably his own. The beautiful etch marks he puts for the feathers are extraordinary. The style of loons he makes, all have a certain grace to them. They are eloquently refined with beautiful proportions and a smooth surface. Etulu's loons have been on the world centre stage and have been part of many international inuit exposes. This is why his loons are so sought after.
