What are the features of this Drum Dancer that let you fall in love with it?
For me, it is the exquisite face.
Dale has carved this Inuk face as if it were a cameo.
A cameo is a piece of jewelry carved with a raised relief. It often depicts a profile of a face or a mythical scene.
God is in the details and the details of the face are awe-inspiring.
The face is cherubic. With its closed eyes, the figure may be praying or sleeping.
Is it the sun or a hood that surrounds the Inuk's head?
This piece is so stunning.
Dale has placed the head in the notch of caribou antlers which form the body of the Inuk.
Peaceful and inspirational.
Dale is an artist committed to and inspired by his craft.
