Mathewsie Oshutsiuk

Born in Cape Dorset, Nunavut

Mathewsie Oshutsiuk is a Inuit carver from Cape Dorset, the capital of Inuit art. Mathewsie mostly sculpts Inukshuks, which, traditionally, were used by the Inuit in the north as directional markers. A sculpture of an Inukshuk in the shape of a person signifies safety, hope and friendship. Inukshuks have been transformed into a symbol of hope and friendship, which was used in the Vancouver winter olimpics logo in 2010.

Mathewsie Oshutsiuk sculpts mostly with serpentine, a very hard stone, from the same family as jade.
