Inuit Loon Bird Carvings

One of my favorite Inuit carvers is Saima Alayco who also goes by the name Simon. He carves some wonderful sculptures of loon birds that have exquisite detail, especially in the feathers of the wings. The type of birds that he carves are often loons which have long slender necks and Saima faithfully reproduces these in his carvings. My last one was sold to a customer in the Netherlands and I was lucky enough to get two new loon birds by Saima. I see that he has now starting to carve the wings in different positions which is not an easy thing to do with stone. These Inuit loon bird carvings are at the Other Inuit Carvings category at Free Spirit Gallery.
