Inuit Art: Orca (Killer) Whale
Artist: Derrald Taylor
Dimensions: 9" wide, 7" high, 3" deep
Community: Tuktoyaktuk, North West Territories
Magnificent Movement! Museum quality Carving!
Derrald's Orcas are one of the galleries most sought after carvings.
Each Orca has its own story and is somehow more magnificent and unique than the one that came before it.
Sunset Swim is spectacular.
The Orca is exactly what we have come to expect from Taylor; a handsome, muscular marine athlete cavorting in the ocean.
What I love about this piece (other than the Orca) is the pastel coloured rock over which Sunset is swimming.
Such an unusual and exquisite stone.
The contrast between the pastel and the dramatic black and white of the Orca is fantastic.
The Orca seems even more majestic when viewed against the rock.
Taylor has earned his place among the ranks of today’s top master carvers like Ruben Komangapik.
His ability to carve a sense of motion into his sculptures is a testament to his skill and talent.
Not every carver is able to rise to this level of perfection.
Taylor’s pieces have toured worldwide and are in countless publications, Inuit art journals, exhibitions, and museums.
Don't miss this opportunity to have this magnificent Orca in your collection.
