as these people join the modern world the examples of their lost culture will become more collectable,they can then buy it back and remember the times when they had land and an identity

Yes Happy  first two probably 1982 and possibly by the same person although they were bought separately. The third one probably 1997.

I've seen a number of Shoni pieces recently, modestly priced. A good time to buy.

Seal. Stone type points to Belcher Islands (Sanikiluaq)

Inuit Carvings 50699710
Inuit Carvings 72a3e110



Mother and child in an interesting greenish serpentine rock
approx. 6.5" high x 4" wide x 5" deep
Via the Inuit Arts group -
"...in kitikmeot east like kugaaruk, Gjoa Haven and Taloyoak the most earlier carvers were given an idea to mark letter C with a circle around to protect copy writes. I remember because my father was Charlie Ugyuk Sr. Who was one of the well known carvers in this area and been ask by I think co-op management and Hudson's Bay."

Some new Inuit pieces courtesy of ppcollectables . The last one, of a mother and child, is the biggest and heaviest I’ve bought; took ages just to a unwrap it. Big Laughter


Signed Silasie - believed to be by Silassie Tuki, (although Silasie Qunisiguk from Akulivik (d. 1980) has also been suggested). I thought it was a pair of Wrestlers but appears the second figure is being swaddled.

Unusual greenish coloured stone
A comment on the Inuit Arts group says the green serpentine was easier to carve so often used in the earliest pieces (NB. but still being used so it shouldn't be assumed a piece is early)

Inuit mother and child carved from an unusual brown stone. Incomplete; possibly missing a wooden sled.
The stone type might be from Lake Harbour (Kimmirut)

Various pieces found while sorting out the bookshelves. I’m embarrassed to say I don’t recall buying the pair of seals and walrus, or the seal in the post below. Always nice to come across surprises like this
