MIA Visitor Linda T. with "Creation Story" (2007) by Manasie Akpaliapik (1955-), Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay). whalebone, stone, ivory, Private collection

Where are you from?

Etobicoke, ON

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

No. I was brought here by the complimentary admission. It is also our monthly anniversary and my boyfriend has an interest in native culture.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I like the large size and the detailed carving of the animals.
