Where are you from?
What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?
Yes, this is my first visit. l’m here because of a love of Inuit art and the heritage.
Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?
It’s incredible to me this is carved from a block of stone and captures some of the heritage of the people.
