"Hunter"

The Vet's Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, where my dad is now, has a wonderful collection of Inuit art but it is all behind glass and hard to photograph without getting a lot of reflections. I particularly like this soapstone one which is titled Hunter and was done in 1970 by the artist Saralie (I think).
Taking part in Weekend Reflections. Click HERE to see reflections from around the world.

There's something determined about that expression - the figure exudes concentration of purpose.

Inuit artwork is sososo interesting and such a pleasure to view. This is a lovely sculpture and the reflections are nice. I hope your dad is happy at the Vet Centre and that he is close enough to you that you can visit often. g

You are right about the difficulty of photographing things under glass! You did a good job, though!

Perfect for reflections though Pat :) Lovely rounded lines and I do love the softness of soapstone sculptures.

Makes me wonder why it's behind glass. Security?

Oh that is pretty!

Gee, this one looks blue. Is that an effect of the lighting or is it really blue? (Hope Dad likes his new housing.)

I'm fond of Inuit soapstone sculptures. I don't own any but I do love to see it!
