“[Aoudla] is known for his carvings of bears in the green stone. Unlike many Eskimo carvers that portray bears as they actually are, [Aoudla] gives them a spiritual quality. They seem to possess a superhuman power or intelligence. [Aoudla’s] works are in numerous collections throughout Canada.”
Canadian Eskimo Arts Council. “Sculpture/Inuit”, 1971
Aoudla was married to the late Nurluapik Pee, a sculptor and craftswoman.
