Inuit art: Walking Bear

Sherbert is a stunning yellow green colour that is seldom seen in Inuit carvings.
His style is realistic (meaning he looks like a real bear).
With his head down, he scents the ground for guidance as he walks across the rough Arctic terrain.
Like Cape Dorset, the artists from Kimmirut have a reputation for carving in the natural or realistic style.
Peter Aningmiuq is part of this thriving art community.
Famous carvers Pitseolik Qimirpik and Mark Pitsiulak are also from Kimmirut.
