Lot Report


Waddington’s Auctioneers, Toronto, November 2000, Lot 360


“From Igloolik we moved to Pond Inlet. It was there that I started to carve. A white man there said that my uncle and one other man were the only people who carved in this settlement. I told him I knew I could carve too if I tried … I have been carving since then.”
