Sheokjuk Oqutaq was known for the sheer beauty of his sculptures, and this piece is no exception. A small bird perches on an open hand, both beautifully executed. We are left to wonder about the impetus behind the carving.

Sheokjuk Oqutaq, Fish
3 1/4 x 12 x 3 in.
Sheokjuk Oqutaq was known for the sheer beauty of his carvings. Exquisitely refined, his fish, loons and other creatures have the most delicate of details. The fins on this fish are translucent, and its sinuous shape is so compelling that you expect it to swim away.

Sheokjuk Oqutaq, Narwhal
7 1/2 x 11 x 3 in.
Sheokjuk Oqutaq was distinguished among first-generation Cape Dorset artists by the sheer beauty of his carvings. This narwhal is a very large carving for Sheokjuk, carved in a handsome stone. The composition is dynamic, with the head and tusk thrusting boldly up, while the body and tail curve around. SOLD
