This is an extremely important piece in regards to the development of inuit art. Lucy is among the first or second generation of Inuit carvers who pioneered the entire industry back in the 1960's & 70's.
Her family sculptures are her signature and indistinguishable to any other form of inuit art. in some ways, they are very raw and traditional, but viewed from another angel, they are ultra modern and minimalist. In any case, they are absolutely gorgeous and I did not hesitate when I saw this.
