Inukshuk Carving (Labradorite)

from 39.99

Beautiful Inukshuk carving made from Newfoundland and Labrador's provincial mineral, Labradorite. Labradorite makes a beautiful ornamental stone - you can see the light dancing in the stone as you view the piece from different angles! Inukshuks were used by Inuit travelers to guide them across the treeless tundra of the Canadian artic. Measured at approximately 4.25 inches high. The carving, hand crafted here in Newfoundland by Nathaniel Noel, would make a great conversation piece about Canadian heritage.

Ornamental granite with Labradorite inclusions comes in a number of varieties. These hand carved inukshuk are available in Blue Pearl (lighter, clearer color) and Emerald Pearl (darker, greener colour).

Artist Biography:
Working as a geologist in northern Canadian locations, Nathaniel Noel has had a unique opportunity to observe animals in their natural habitat. Today, he uses those first-hand observations as a basis for the stone sculptures he creates in his studio of Lawrence Pond, Upper Gullies, Newfoundland.

Noel has been carving for more than twenty years. Over time he has developed a distinctive and very personal approach to his subject matter and to the material in which he works. Noel's work is found in many collections throughout the world including those of Nelson Mandela, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and Her Royal Highness Princess Ann.
