MIA Visitor Fiona G. with "Creation Story" (2007)by Manasie Akpaliapik (1955-) from Ikpiarjuk, whalebone, stone, ivory, Private collection

 

Where are you from?

Liverpool, England

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

I am an admin at the Museum of Liverpool, UK and am interested from both a visitor and an academic point of view. This is my first visit but I’m interested in coming back!

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

This piece is totally engaging. It’s different from every angle and provides something different everytime you view it. The materials add a lovely texture, making it inviting. You could look at it for hours and still see something new!
