Rahel B., a MIA visitor, with “Musk Ox” (c. 1980) by Mark Tungilik (1913-1986), Naujat (Repulse Bay), stone, antler, Private Collection.

Where are you from?

Switzerland.

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

I’ve been a volunteer here in my gap year in Canada in 2008.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

Firstly, it has two colours, is humerous, it’s face and it’s back is higher, it’s a useful animal (for work) not just a wild animal.
