I will admit, Inukshuk aren't normally my favourite subjects in Inuit art. Generally speaking, I find them boring and lack certain dynamics. However, to meet our corporate order demands, I am compelled to buy them.
With this particular inukshuk by Esau, this is not nearly the case. This inukshuk has so much dimensions to it, with the imprints of various arctic animals. I Love the white stone, and the detail is masterful.
This would make an incredible gift for a corporate client. It is not just your A-typical inukshuk. This one is done in a very unique and special way.
Its beauty will resonate throughout the entire room and your audience will be captivated by it.
Esa himself is from a very remote Inuit community called Igloolik. Artists in Igloolik have a unique style. They focus on creating sculptures to look as real as possible. The stone is rarely polished and they prefer a dry flat finish.
