    Inuit Sculpture Taqialuk Nuna Bear Family

    Inuit Sculpture Taqialuk Nuna Bear Family

    This sculpture, carved by Cape Dorset artist Taqialuk Nuna, depicts a mother bear with three cubs, perhaps in a defensive position. It is a charming work, showing the closeness of a bear family, with cubs of different sizes cuddling up with their protective mother.

    Guide to Cape Dorset Artists, by Kyra Vladykov Fisher, has this to say about the artist, who was born in 1959:

    “Taqialuq Nuna was eight years old when he started carving. Taq, as he is sometimes called, has taken many courses — from local prospecting courses to marble carving (in Rutland, Vermont) to a workshop on carving limestone with power tools in Holman Island in 1989. The courses taught him how to work on hard stone and how to cut and dig the stone without breaking it. When he carves a piece that he considers successful, he says, ‘it gets me back to nature. I love to carve bears when they are clustered together.; they look peaceful’. He is known for his groups of bears, usually five together. If he carves them on a base it is extremely difficult to get inside to carve the legs.”

    This is a substantial sculpture: 16 in. long x 12 in. wide x 8 in. high.

    Ame

    This carving was inspired by Ame Papatsie, an Inuk artist from Pangnirtung, in Nunavut, who works in two dimensions. Alec Lawson Tuckatuck has created two sculptures in one: an inukshuk on one side, and a man on the other. The contrast between the limestone and the serpentine make this a very striking piece. The shape of the inukshuk, which is based on the human form, is reflected in the shape of the man. The seemingly static pose of the man is brought to life by the energetic, organic lines going from front to back.

    How Fog Came to Be

    One day, an Inuk was fishing, as he was very hungry. He kept on looking around to see if there were any other animals around that he could catch for food. As he was looking around, he saw a giant man, coming towards him. The Inuk was scared that the giant would kill him, so he lay down and pretended he was dead. When the giant came to the Inuk, the giant saw that he was dead so he picked him up, put him on his back and carried him to his home and put him on the floor.

    When the giant’s wife saw what her husband brought back, she decided to go outside and prepare something for the meal. The giant was tired, so he lay down to go to sleep. The Inuk realized that he was going to be eaten, so he opened his eyes to see what he could do to escape. When he opened his eyes, the giants children saw him and started yelling, “he moved his eyes!” The giant, very tired, angrily said, “no, he’s dead, be quiet, ” and the giant went to sleep. When the Inuk opened his eyes he saw an axe close to the giant. When the giant fell asleep, the Inuk jumped up, grabbed the axe, killed the giant, and ran out the door and started running away.

    The wife started running after him and, as she was gaining on him, the Inuk swung the axe into the ground. The ground opened up, started filling with water and started becoming a river. When the wife got to the the edge of the river, she yelled out to him and asked, “how did you get across?” The Inuk yelled back to her, “by drinking the water.” The wife then drank the water until she felt she couldn’t drink anymore. The Inuk told her to keep on drinking, so she did. She kept on drinking until her stomach burst and a fog started to come out. This is how fog came to be.

    Beautifully executed in soapstone and elegant alabaster.

    The Will

    This is a stunning sculpture by Alec Lawson Tuckatuck, a young Inuit artist from Kujjuaraapik. Tuckatuck, who is descended from a line of fine artists, is depicting a defining moment, when a hunter has harpooned a beluga whale. The hunter is holding on for dear life as the whale attempts its escape. The “Will” refers to the Inuit people’s determination and persistence to survive in a harsh and dangerous environment. They will do whatever is necessary to survive, often placing themselves in perilous situations to feed themselves and their families.

    Carved from alabaster and soapstone.
