Here's the blurb

The Winrob Collection contains one of the most significant assemblages of Inuit sculpture created from bone, antler and whalebone, which due to declining availability, makes such sculptures quite rare. The collection is also notable for its wealth of innovative sculpture from the Nunavik communities of Puvirnituq, Inukjuak, and Kangiqsualujjuaq. Among the artists are Nick Sikkuark and Karoo Ashevat. Magnificently illustrated with 145 illustrations, many in color.
