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 Chris C. with "Mermaid" (1979) by Matiusie Iyaituk (1950), Ivujivik, Stone Caribou Antler,Muskox Horn, Sinew, Private Collection on Loan to MIA

Where are you from?

Melbourne, Australia

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

Yes.  Rain

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I like the use of different materials and the use of the natural colours of the bone and horn.  Also, it looks a little scary yet friendly at the same time.
