Inuvialuit Carver

This is Priscilla Taylor, the Inuvialuit Carver.  She is a third generation carver from Tuktoyaktuk. I saw her booth at the Butterdome craft sale back in May. She was a pleasure to talk to and not camera shy.  I like to take pictures of artists with their work.  Some of the carvings have been made by different members of her family as well.

The beautiful life like carvings drew me into her booth.  I regret that I didn't take more close up photos of the other carvings. This photo does not do her work justice, so I am glad she has an Instagram account where you can see more of her charming artwork.

I asked her which one of her carvings is her favourite, and she chose the hunter hunting a beluga whale.  It is made from soapstone and muskox horn.  These carvings would make a great gift for the man or woman in your life who likes the outdoors, animals, and handmade items.  They would look stunning in any living room or den.
