Unknown Inuit artist
Igloo Scene, c.1950

One of the most frustrating things about researching Inuit art was that in the beginning, people did not think of these sculptures as fine art, but crafts so nobody bothered to write any artist names down. Sometimes artists inscribed works with their disc numbers (numbers assigned to individual Inuit by the Canadian government in lieu of their names because white people found them too difficult to pronounce/write down). The database of these numbers are now classified because the government is embarrassed of how dehumanizing this was.This leaves it so that there is no way for scholars like me to find out who created beautiful sculptures like the one above.

I am having a blast with these tiny rooms. This one is the smallest yet! Done in a matchbox and can be closed to fit in the box sleeve. :)

The drawer opens, same with display cabinet. The picture is framed and has “glass”. The cabinet had “glass” panels too! Made out if plastic film.

The couch is actual fabric with real seat and back cushions. :)
