Playing Favourites is a running series featuring MIA visitors, staff and volunteers with their favorite objects in our collection.  Playing Favourites is open to every person at MIA, so please let us know if you’d like to participate the next time you visit.

MIA visitor Parul with “Mask” (c. 1968) by Dolfus Cadieux (2008), Yellowknife, Stone, Private Collection

Where are you from?

Boston, Massachusetts (USA).

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

Yes! We are visiting Toronto for the weekend.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I like the orange colour and the texture of the stone (alabaster). It makes her hair seem very flowy and free.
