Hunters and a Bear (2001)



“My father (Sharky Nuna) is on the land hunting a polar bear with my older brother (Qavavau Nuna) and me.”

Taqialuq (Tuk) Nuna


Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1958- )

Tuk is a son of carver Sharky Nuna, who was killed in a boating accident while walrus hunting in 1979. After learning to carve by watching his father, Tuk made his first works when he was eight. He became more serious about carving in his late twenties and today carves when he is not out hunting. His rounded comfortable style suits the animal and human subjects that so interest him.
