MIA visitor Phyllis with "Birds".

Phyllis, a MIA visitor, with “Birds” (c. 1970s) by George Tataniq (1910-1991), Qamani’tuaq (Baker Lake), stone, MIA Collection

Where are you from?

Beijing, China.

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

I’m a recent immigrant and want to understand the culture here, including the history of Aboriginal culture.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I really like all of the birds here, it is difficult to say only one is my favourite.
