Cape Dorset Sculpture

November 2005

"...what is consistently striking about their work... is each artist's distinctive style and insistence on giving an original twist to traditional subjects. There is a great deal of the unexpected in the works of this 'older' generation. It is marvelous, and marvelously in synch with evolving sensibilities elsewhere in the world." "The marvels of the arctic are in this book."
