Collection Spotlight: Mother and Child
This carved soapstone sculpture shows a kneeling woman with an infant in a carrier on her back. Her eyes and necklace, made from ivory, stand out against the dark color of the stone.
Creating carvings from natural resources like stone and bone is a traditional craft of Inuit artists. Soapstone, a softer stone, is easier to carve. Figures of animals, birds, men, women, and children are popular motifs. In the hunting culture, the carved figure of mother and child contrasts with imagery of male hunters, and represents the giving and nurturing of life.
Wishing all mothers a beautiful Mother's Day!
Mother and Child, c. 1940
Unknown artist, Baffin Island, Canada
