Canada Vignettes: Inuit Pipe

Top of page

With the eye of the artist who crafted this exceptional Inuit artifact, the camera explores in close-up the exquisite detail of the daily hunt, fishing scenes, and children at play incised in black on ivory that has the warm patina of age. This pipe is an outstanding example of the traditional fine pieces--small, light, easily portable, and lavished with artistic detail.
