Inuit Art Zwickers Gallery

Zwicker's has a good selection of Inuit art including two Taloyoak (Spence Bay) dolls. Dolls have been an integral part of Inuit culture for thousands of years. By the age of 10, Inuit girls were taught by their mothers how to clothe a family. They made their own dolls with removable clothing. With the end of nomadic life this changed. However, there remained a market for these traditional dolls in the south These rare examples were made by Inuit elders from Spence Bay and are over 70 years old. Zwicker's has a wide selection of Inuit art.
