Loon by Jimmy Iqaluq of Sanikiluaq, Belcher Islands, Nunavut, Canada
From 1990; this is from a time of classic loons from Sanikiluaq, long before this artist used glass eyes to embellish his carvings. The elevated wing and sneaky little foot sticking out are diagnostic features for all of Jimmy Iqaluq's loons.

Canada Goose by Johnnysa Mathewsie of Kingait (Cape Dorset), Baffin Island, Canada.
Wings up in all its glory, behold the fabled Canada Goose, rendered in an exquisite combination of serpentines and marbles. This stoic figure is a true eye-grabber and one of the larger figures this artist has done in this style.
