Authentic Inuksuk Sculptures Available On Amazon
Hand-Carved Inuit Eskimo Sculptures
Artwork created by the Inuit of Baffin Island is now available for purchase on Amazon.com via apples+oranges.
These sculptures, carved from sandstone, are handmade by Inuit artists working today.
One sculpture offered is of an Inuksuk – a rock formation created by the Inuit as a landmark for finding people and food caches.
The gallery from which apples+oranges sells its sculptures says that the Inuksuk were critical to the hunting culture of the Inuit.
" The Inuit hunters would hide behind them armed with their bows and arrows. The women and children would herd caribou by waving hides up and down to create loud noises, enabling the hunters to move behind the herd. The statues would also double as landmarks identifying the locations of caches of stored meat."
The image of the inuksuk is iconic to the Inuit, and was the logo for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
Since 1987 The Baffin Art Gallery has brought the intricate artwork and sculpture from the Baffin Island Eskimos to the world, highlighting its exceptional quality and the hand-carved care that goes into every piece.
The majority of their artwork reflects the wilderness and environment of Baffin Island. – the Inuit expression of nature and life. Inuits pass down artwork through the generations to preserve traditions.
You can purchase the inuksuk sculpture from apples+oranges on Amazon.com for $75.00. The product comes in protective packaging directly from the gallery with minimal handling.
To prove authenticity, there is an "Igloo Card" by the Canadian Government included with each sculpture. This provides information on the artist and their community, which you can research further on the Canadian government's website.
As these sculptures are handmade, supplies are very limited and may not be duplicated once sold.
