Very big Mother Loon by world famous Jimmy Iqaluq from Sanikiluaq.
It is your one in a lifetime chance to have a spectacular loon like that by world famous Inuit artist.
Jimmy only carves about one loon this big a year.

This gorgeous Loon measures  18 inches long by  5 inches tall, 7 inches wide. 


The Mother Loon has red eyes, just like a real loon.

Each feather on both mother and the baby carved to perfection.

To give a brief overview of this sculpture is like trying to describe why a beautiful woman is so beautiful. The picture speaks for itself. What I can say is this carving is from Jimmy Iqaluq. He is famous for his loons as one sits in Ottawas national art museum of fine arts. He is among the 5 elite Inuit artists in Canada and has exhibitions that have toured all over the world. His pieces are valued very highly.


The carving is signed on the bottom and comes with an igloo tag.
