ISA AQIATTUSUK SMILER (1921-1986)
Private collection, Hamilton, ON
Carved with minute attention to anatomic detail and character of surface, Smiler’s depiction of an otter and prey form a sumptuous contrast to the icey, or perhaps rocky outcropping on which the figure is posed. A delightful rendition of a familiar subject.
