Latcholassie Akesuk, Bird-seal transformation, c. 1965
2 1/2 x 5 1/4 x 1 1/4 in. (6.3 x 13.3 x 3.2 cm)
Ex Albrecht Collection
In true Latcholassie fashion, this carving is somewhat ambiguous in appearance. Although the overall form is that of a seal, its head is decidedly bird-like. The carving’s small size and beautiful finish lend this
creature an intimate quality that is not often found in Latcholassie’s work.
