Where are you from?
What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?
We are here because of the attraction of museums and our passion for Inuit art.
Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?
Because the piece reflects the truth that even the birds have a soft heart and care for their belongings. How beautifully a bird is shading and protecting the eggs from sun and other things.
