Inuit Soapstone Carving - $165 (Hingham)

make / manufacturer: MarkParkinson
size / dimensions: 8" long x 6" high
This is one of three soapstone carvings I've posted on CL purchased directly from the artist, Mark Parkinson, in 1980.
Mark (1927-2010) and his surviving son Ross, both sculptors from Canada, are renowned for their soapstone art.
Mark's carvings are on display in Buckingham Palace after presenting examples of his Intuit carvings to Queen Elizabeth in 1977.
This carving, an Intuit woman returning to her village with a seal, is a fine example of Mark's craftsmanship.
His carvings continue to grow in value and my asking price of $165 is below it's value.
Please, serious inquiries only.
Interested? Email your name and a return tel. number.
I shall reply. thank you.
