Fantastic dark green ptarmigan by Inuit artist Kulula Itulu from Kimmirut, NU. This beautiful and shiny bird caught my attention mostly due to its very illuminating dark coloring. The bird looks almost black, very rich color. Its movement is very active and alive, coupled with beautiful proportions and lines.

The stone is polished extremely well which is why it looks so smooth and refined.

It is new and purchased directly from the artist. An igloo tag of authenticity is attached.
