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 Rita and Thomas G.. with "Two-Headed Shaman" (c. 1980s) by Judas Ullulaq (1937 - 1999), Uqsuqtuuq (Gjoa Haven), Bone, Private Collection

Where are you from?

Germany

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

First visit – Tourist book “City/Trip Toronto”

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

At first it’s funny.  But we also like it because it shows the two faces of one person: the evil/crazy side and the friendly/normal one.
