In the Likeness of a Human - Inukshuk Detail

Marking places of spiritual power, venerating ancestors or helping travellers to survive on a vast featureless Arctic landscape, Inuit Inuksuiit have also come to represent the Canadian welcoming spirit internationally. I found this Inukshuk in my travels watching over the small Baffin Island community of Clyde River, Nunavut.

Techniques: Nuno felting, needle felting, trapunto, thread sketching (quilted cotton backing and black frame);
Seta colour transparent fabric paint
