Abraham Anghik Rubin's sculptures envision the rich prehistory of the North American Arctic, embracing the early Viking expeditions to the New World counterbalanced with the sustained settlement, whaling culture, and spiritual life of his Inuvialuit ancestors. Through his powerful and compelling sculptures, the myths and legends of ancient northern cultures find new life and expression.
