Inuit Art Seal Carving For Friend

I gave a long time friend a very nice Inuit art seal carving for his birthday. This will be his first ever piece of Inuit art. His wife is an artist on the side so she will definitely appreciate the skill that was involved in producing this seal carving. Maybe this gift will start a new collection and interest in Inuit art with my friend.

Will Try Help Friend Get Inuit Dancing Bear

Looks like another one of my friends have caught the bug on Inuit art and like many, want to get that nice dancing bear for her collection. I'm going to help her find a really nice carving for her living room. Inuit dancing bears have been very popular since they really spark the imagination with their playful stances. More information on Inuit dancing bears available.

Northwest Native Salmon Legend Used By Diversity Speaker

Diversity speaker Clint Cora has been a long time fan of Northwest Native art and one of the legends from the Northwest is about the Salmon People. Clint uses this legend as part of his current diversity talk. It is not well known outside of the native world and is a captivating story which fits nicely into Clint's presentation on diversity.

Inuit Art As A Special Birthday Present

One of my friends will be celebrating his 40th birthday later this month and I plan to give him a special birthday present. I haven't decided which one yet but it will be a nice Inuit carving from my gallery. I don't think he has any Inuit art yet so this will be a great introduction to Inuit art for him.

Don't Hide Eskimo Art Carver Signatures

Sometimes, companies approach me to buy Eskimo art carvings as corporate gifts and they want them mounted on a plaque. What I usually tell them is that if they do mount them, the carver's signature will be hidden as they usually carve their names on the bottom of their artwork.
