Playing Favourites: Zeina W., August 28, 2012

30 Aug

Zeina W., a MIA visitor, with “Spirit World of the Inuit” by Manasie Akpaliapik (1955-), Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay), whalebone, stone, ivory, Private Collection.

Where are you from?

Vancouver, BC.

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

My friend Aviva, who volunteers at the MIA, brought me.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I like how the artist integrated the natural contours of the bone into his art.
