JOE TALIRUNILI (1893-1976)
Private Collection, Winnipeg, MB
"Apart from the migration scene, most of Joe's sculptures are single figures, frontal view, staring solemnly at the viewer. Crudely worked, and largely unpolished, they have a rustic, expressive appeal."
Maria von Finckenstein, Celebrating Inuit art, Canadian Museum of Civilization, 1999, p. 90
