Artist of the moment…..Samuel Nahaulaituq

Samuel Nahaulaituq was a master Inuit carver born in Perry Island,  Nunavut Territory, Canada in the year 1923.

Began to work as a professional beginning in 1972. His family had decided to give up living in camps and live in a stand alone house.  The Nahaulaituq family relocated to Spence Bay, Nunavut Territory, Canada.

price range information: Works range from $500 to $4,000.

First group exhibition took place in 1977.

Nahaulaituq was known for his detail. I love the woman in the gallery, what a great facial expression and to cap it off, wonderfully aged and skillfully designed teeth.

The artist passed away when in 1999 at the age of 76 years old.
