Micah Gallery is pleased to present works from Inuit soap stone carvers Mark Totan and Clark Totan. Their creations include Inukshuks in various sizes and colourations. The Inukshuk, a symbol of direction and friendship, originally erected to help those traveling in the often barren landscape of the arctic, has been chosen as an image for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

Our collection of Totan sculpture also includes soapstone bears, and birds, as well as other figures from arctic life. Mark has said that he often spends hours just looking at the stones he intends to carve: “I never know what I am going to carve ahead of time. Then…it will be there as a bear, a walrus, or a person and I’ll start carving.”

New to the gallery is Manitoba artist, Murray Watson. Murray, a self taught carver, works primarily with butternut, a wood known for its delicate texture and creamy hue. His favourite subject is birds, especially elegant Canada Geese and whimsical Owls, which he mounts on pieces of driftwood found on the banks of Manitoba lakes.

Also, don’t forget to have a look at our collection of Aurora gold and Canadian Diamond jewellery, as well as Aurora and Korite Ammolite jewellery.
