A large and heavy, but delicate sculpture at the Montclair Art Museum. It is so simple yet very expressive. It hangs in the stairwell from the main exhibits floor that leads down to the art studios and the gift shop. It is inspired by the Inupiat peoples art, and you can see a beautiful Inupiat tapestry on the wall on the right.

This is right out of the camera, the natural lighting and colors are all browns, making it look very sepia naturally. I believe the sculpture is supposed to represent a whale.

My name is Jane. I am an artist, writer, photographer, and an admirer of the arts. Here on RB I share my photography, writing, collages and art, and host many groups. I hope you enjoy my work.

    It is simple, and you have captured and presented it very well Jane!

  • thank you – it is simple and very similar to the Eskimo images at the museum – so heavy and huge but appears to be so light as it “floats” there.
