Ningeosiak Ashoona Resting Seal
Cape Dorset artist Ningeosiak Ashoona is best known for her long-necked loon sculptures. Here she has carved a substantial seal whose back flippers are perhaps better suited to a sea lion, as seals’ rear flippers generally lie behind them when they are on their stomach. This is not the place for an anatomy lesson, so we leave the interpretation to you.
8 inches long x 4 inches wide x 5 1/2 inches high.
