MIA Visitor Cathy with "Bird Creature" (2009) by Toonoo Sharky, RCA (1970-) from Kinngait (Cape Dorset), stone, Private Collection

 

Where are you from?

Oshawa.

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

Serendipity. Yes, it is my first visit.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I love the primitive power of this piece. I know owls have magical powers in folklore.
