Joe Talirunili, ᔪᐅ ᑕᓚᕈᓂᓕ



stone, wood, thread, antler, skin, signed in Roman

6.5" x 3" x 2" — 16.5 x 7.6 x 5.1 cm.

In addition to his migration sculptures, Talirunili is equally known for his hunters, owls and female figures (see lot 73). Each hunter is somewhat unique, defined by subtle differences in his outfitting with tools and attire. This work is a great example of Joe’s distinct style; a solitary figure, staring straight forward, minimally polished but laden with traditional weapons. This fellow looks pleased to be out on the land.

Estimate: $2,500—3,500
