Date of birth: 1946 Birth place: Tulukanni Residence: Cape Dorset Signature piece: Loon Etulu Etidloi learned to carve by watching his father, Etidloi Etidloi, carve when he was younger. Because of the loon being requested so much, it became his primary carving for 25 years. He is a dedicated artist, who mainly carves to support himself. Etulu says that the shape of the stone is what dictates what he should make, and often studies the stone before he makes a piece.
Isaci Etidloie was born on November 15, 1972. He comes from a family of well-known artists from cape Dorset, the most art productive community on Baffin Island, Nunavut. Isaci is the son of Cape Dorset carver Etulu Etidloie known primarily, for his lovely loons mounted on either stone, or a piece of caribou antler, and the grandson of renowned graphic artists Etidlooie and Kingmeata Etidloie. His uncle Kelly is also a talented sculptor, mostly known for his lively carvings of narwhals. Isaci is a very gifted young artist with a tremendous amount of potential. Like his father, Isaci likes to carve birds, but he is equally interested in portraying human figure and mythological imagery, and that is where his great technical control in depicting the movement and proportions is best represented. Isaci takes great care in choosing the stone. His carvings are made of finest serpentine of varying green shades with gold veining, smoothed and polished to best exhibit the beauty of the stone. Serpentine is a metamorphic rock found on Baffin Island. It is a very hard stone with a composition similar to Jade.
