What was it that attracted the collector
to Inuit art in the first place?

Some say it was the minimally carved
works from the Keewatin or the polished
serpentine elegance of Baffin Island, and
yet others were drawn to small carvings
made from antler, bone and ivory. The
eloquent treatment of classic themes of
family, hunting and wildlife depicted by the
Inuit carvers has much to do with the
popularity of Inuit art.

Included in this collection are three
maternal pieces, intimate portraits
illustrating the beauty and tenderness
of the Inuit mother. A fine collection
of early Repulse Bay pieces as well as
a surprise work by Barnabas make for
an interestig collection created between
1960 - 1985.
