Mireille asked for a picture of the walrus we bought on the weekend. And here he is...
We now have a shelf of sculptures and carvings. We've actually bought much more than this in our two years up here, but we often give them away as gifts. Our parents have done particularly well. Also, if we stay with friends when travelling we often give a carving as a way of saying thank you. So really, if you want a nice carving, put us up at your place or feed us.
Here's the shelf of carvings...
And this is a wall hanging we have that we're fond of.
Our next acquisition may be something from the Cape Dorset print exhibition showing next month in town. We've gone in previous years and have either not had the money or couldn't agree on a print. This year, miraculous, we have found two that we like. Go here if you want to see the prints that will be available, although we're obviously hoping those prices are for people down south and they will be a little lower here.
The first one we like is Owls Bouquet by Kenojuak Ashevak.
The other is Owls in Moonlight by Ningeokuluk Teevee. We apparently have a thing of owls this year.
Mireille is right...we're going to have quite the collection before we leave the north.
