Inuit Anonymous, Fantasy creature
Serpentine, 9 x 6 x 3 in.
SOLD I jokingly call this my "Inuit stegosaurus," but in fact it is a fantasy creature by an unknown artist. In the 1960's many Cape Dorset artists experimented with fanciful creatures, and this appears to be one of the results. The style is highly reminiscent of Latcheolassie Akesuk's minimalist carvings, but the piece is not signed and we cannot attribute it to any particular artist. It is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
