Sheokjuk Oqutaq was known for the sheer beauty of his sculptures, and this piece is no exception. A small bird perches on an open hand, both beautifully executed. We are left to wonder about the impetus behind the carving.

Sheokjuk Oqutaq, Narwhal
7 1/2 x 11 x 3 in.
Sheokjuk Oqutaq was distinguished among first-generation Cape Dorset artists by the sheer beauty of his carvings. This narwhal is a very large carving for Sheokjuk, carved in a handsome stone. The composition is dynamic, with the head and tusk thrusting boldly up, while the body and tail curve around. SOLD
