I Found An Art: Qumaluk Sculpture

qumalak Sculpture

I found this happy fellow at the Junction Flea last Sunday. It is dated 1975 and signed in syllabics which I can make out to read “Qumaluk. Now the Qumaluks are something of artistic dynasty in Povungnituk, Quebec. I haven’t been able to crack the rest of the sylabics to narrow down who the artist is. I love a good research hole so I am happy to invest the effort. I also want to build an armature so this guy can stand up and look around. In the mean time, I will just enjoy this happy face.
