This is an incredible piece that will one day be coveted by a museum. The Malliki family is world renown for their beautiful compositions. They set a new standard for inuit art in their relentless pursuit for realism and detail. This sense of high achievement puts them in an elite circle of very few master carvers. artists
This particular piece took my breath away. I Love the beautiful dark stone. It is done in a rugged finish like all carvings from Repulse Bay. The piece has extraordinary detail to it and perfect proportions. The movement is exquisite, and the compositions of the drum contrasting to the dark stone give this piece the panache that it deserves.
