"so with our eyes we listen to the silent language of sculpture. listen carefully. to do otherwise - to be indifferent - is the greatest betrayal of one person by another, of one culture by another."

images and text from sculpture/inuit, 1971, canadian eskimo arts council. a super thick beautiful book of inuit sculpture from the early 1900s - 1960s. readily available on ABE for less than ten bucks. highly recommended. my copy, a soiled and worn reference, found in my grandmother's sculpture studio.

Is there a way to view a larger version of these images?

sorry, the size i scanned them at is to fit the blog, which is only 311 x 311... actually the pics in the book aren't much bigger!

Inuition...the toothed thing with no arms, with no language but a cry.
