MIA Visitor Tom with "Narwhal" (2011) by Inuk Charlie (1956- ), Taloyoak (Spence Bay), stone, muskox horn, copper, MIA Collection

Where are you from?

Perth,  Australia

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

My interest in indigenous art. Yes, first visit.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

Narwhals are a symbol to me of the Arctic and their relationship with Inuit people is one which captures the symbiosis of respectful and sustainable life.
