Barnabus created a number of prints and drawings but he is first and foremost recognized as a leading figure in contemporary Inuit sculpture.
He is a pioneer in the 1st generation of Inuit carvers and also one of the most highly decorated artists.
Cozy Warm is simple; beautifully rounded angles and rich deep black colour.
