Inuit creations such as carvings and prints often depict elements from the Inuit life ? figural images from people to seals or polar bears, typically crafted from materials on hand. Inuit carving materials often include soapstone, noted for its rich black color, or bone and faux ivory for an ivory-like appearance. Soapstone pieces are often quite rounded and smooth, adding an ironic visual warmth for such a cool climate subject. A carving offers an opportunity to own a sculptural piece small enough to display on a table or bookcase, providing room to display even more Inuit piece. For Inuit art beyond carvings, opt for prints such as children fishing, or primitive-style black and white representations of creatures large and small from the Canadian arctic region.
