MIA visitor Clotilde with “Kivivq Coming out of Fish” (2008) by David Ruben Piqtoukun (1950-), stone, polar bear fur, Private Collection

Where are you from?

Vaudreuil Soulauges, QC

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

I’m interested in Native art.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

The fish head swallowing a human is full of a “way back” sense.
