    Mosesie Pootoogook ~ Inuit

    Mosesie was born in Iqaluit but raised in Cape Dorset. He began carving at age eleven, learning under his father, the well-known carver Paulassie Pootoogook. Mosesie’s late mother, Ishuhungitok, was also an artist, and his brother, Anakadlak, is a carver. He sometimes collaborates on pieces with his father, with whom he learned carving techniques. Mosesie most often depicts seals, walrus and dancing bears in serpentine, a stone similar in composition to jade and found on the southern end of Nunavut’s Baffin Island.
