Where are you from?


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

Its unique collection of Inuit artists.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

A very complex, very imaginative description of anticipation of a war, which is depicted by drum beats, a pensive, thoughtful face, and many eyes of spies in the form of beads. An exotic and masterful creation of the values of the Inuit people.
