Selections from the booklet Canadian Inuit Sculpture - Indian and Northern Affairs Canada
Carvings from Sanikiluaq, situated in the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay, are very popular with both art collectors and tourists.
...but it is the representations of the Arctic wildlife of the islands, particularly birds and marine mammals, that have made the art of this community so eagerly sought after. They also derive much of their popularity from the argillite stone which ranges from light green to almost black, often has a distinctive striped grain, and takes a beautiful polish.
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.
