“Mikkisiti is the son of Pauta, who is a shaman and also a famous sculptor and printmaker. At little more than thirty years of age, Mikkisiti has emerged as an accomplished sculptor himself, who is comfortable working to any scale. Although he is not a prolific artist, every carving of his that I have handled has been excellent. His “Eskimo Family” is arguably the best family group to have come out of the north.”

—excerpt from “Lords of the Stone” by Macduff and Galpin, 1982, page 46, 52.
