OSUITOK IPEELEE, R.C.A. (1923-2005)
Osuitok decribes his work habits: "Nowadays, I generally begin work on something I'm going to carve in the early morning when it's nice, just beginning to get light. I carve at it all day, the next day and even into a third day. I won't get tired of it. I won't get bored.
