Time to go WHAP

Drummer (1973) Sculpture by Karoo Ashevak (1940-1974)
Materials: whalebone, ivory, substantia nigra
Inuit sculpture, Musée des Beaux-arts de Montréal

Ashevak’s whalebone sculptures were inspired by stories of shamans and spirits he learned during his childhood. He began carving in 1970 but was only able to create art for four years – he and his family died tragically in a fire in 1974.
