Selections from the excellent Canadian Government booklet
Canadian Inuit Sculpture
Published under the authority of the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, Ottawa 1992
The stone sculpture of Arviat (formerly Eskimo Point) is probably the least naturalistic of all Inuit art, with little surface elegance or detail. While work from this community may appear crude to some, it has considerable emotional power. As the local steatite is quite hard, most artists employ considerable economy of line.
Although the generic term soapstone is commonly used, this is a bit misleading. Soapstone, a soft talc steatite, is not used nearly as much as the harder serpentine, serpentinite, siltstone, argillite, dolomite, quartz and other types.
Materials are often in short supply, and artists must travel great distances overland or by boat to quarry quantities of good quality stone.
