Where are you from?

Toronto

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

I have never been here so I came to learn about the Inuit, and their culture. Also, it’s our monthly anniversary and we always like to do something special for it!

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

It is incredibly detailed, complex and beautiful.
