Mother owl has spread her wings to protect the young. The eyes made from caribou antler blend exquisitely with the serpentine stone. The carving is polished to a mirror shine with beautiful proportions and lines throughout.
Joanasie Manning (1967- )
Joanassie was born and lived in Cape Dorset all his life.
Joanassie began carving at the age of twenty. His grandfather, the renowned carver Osuitok Ipeelee, was a great influence on his work. After carving sporadically for a number of years, Joanassie is now working more consistently. He has evolved a personal style that is becoming stronger and more confident.*
