Note: “When I first started carving, I was told to make human figures or animals. I carve more complicated pieces than this today by remembering legends and stories that I have heard from my grandparents, who raised me, and by using my imagination.” Marie Bouchard, An Inuit Perspective, Baker Lake Sculpture, 2000, p. 74
