Aoudla Pee

Inuit

Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1920-2002)

“[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.”
