Osuitok Ipeelee vies with Karoo Ashevak of Taloyoak (1940-1974) for the honour of being considered the most brilliant and imaginative Inuit sculptor of all time. His technical mastery of stone is legendary, and the scope of his visual imagination is impressive. Osuitok could be - and was - a carver of breathtaking naturalistic beauty one week, and a daring abstract sculptor the next.
