Family of Spotted Loons by Jerry Eyaituk
is on back order
Inuit art: Family of Loons
Inuit Artist: Jerry Eyaituk
Size: 17" x 14" Caribou bone; 3.5" Long each Loon
Community: Sanikiluaq, NU
Stone: Argilite (gorgeous black)
Fantastic etching marks (feathers and wings).
This is a beautiful sequence of loons floating together along a creek. The multiple elements of caribou antler, and argelite stone contrast beautifully together which gives it a strong presence. When put together in a collage like this, the carving is rather large and impressive.
The beautiful detail seen, with the green stone and beautiful etchings on the backs really make these loons come alive. I paid particular attention to the perfect lines and curves. Its a delightful piece, especially with Jerry's signature red eye.
