Coat of Dreams

2006
Category: 
The sculptural form for this collaborative work was made by Kurok, whose interest in masks, heads and “working with faces that seem to come to life” is evident. The dreamlike coat of images incised on the surface by Napayok achieves an inseparable oneness with Kurok’s portrait-like bust. The sculpture was made in Rankin Inlet, the only Inuit community producing fine-art ceramics.
