Inuit art: Transformation
Inuit Artist: Clayton Keknek
Size: 8" long, 5" high, 3" deep
Community: Gjoa Haven, NU 7/20
Clayton Keknek’s choice of dramatic black, grey and copper stone for this piece is genius.
He has carved black stripes into the stone mimicking the stripes of a snake or a reptile.
Transformation pieces can be complex and sometimes confusing.
There is a head, some flippers and perhaps some arms.
But in all this muddle, is a charming primitive creature making his way in this world.
The quirkiness factor of this piece is 10 out of 10.
Every collection benefits from a carving that is unconventional and unexpected. This could be that piece for you.
