|Cape Dorset, Nunavut, Canada|
This hungry polar bear stalks majestically through its surroundings. Carved of a beautiful local serpentine from the Andrew Gordon Bay quarry, it is a major work by one of the most skilled carvers in Cape Dorset today. Ohaitu Ashoona was born in 1952 into a family of distinguished artists. His mother, Mayoreak Ashoona, father, Qaqaq Ashoona, and uncle, Kiugak Ashoona, were all recognized master stone carvers. Ohaitu learned from them, and in 2002 was recognized with the National Aboriginal Achievement Award for the Visual Arts.
