Playing Favourites is a running series featuring MIA visitors, staff and volunteers with their favorite objects in our collection.  Playing Favourites is open to every person at MIA, so please let us know if you’d like to participate the next time you visit.

MIA visitor Leticia D. with “Creation Story” (2007) by Manasie Akpaliapik (1955 – ), Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay), Whalebone, Ivory, Private Collection on Loan to MIA

Where are you from?

Orlando Florida, USA

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Just found out about it.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

It is my favorite piece because of the unsolved mystery.  It is interesting to speculate as to what really happened and why in all versions her fingers are cut off.  Must represent something.  What does it represent?
