This week's Work of the Week is:
Happy Father’s Day! This whale bone carving of a father carrying a child on his shoulders was created by an unknown artist. Whale bone is a common carving material amongst Inuit artists and we have several sculptures in our collection made out of it. This sculpture was last exhibited in our Kinship exhibition in 2019. Although the identity of the artist remains a mystery, the subject matter is well known to most fathers out there!
