Art, Carvings and Jewelry

Repulse Bay is known for small realistic sculptures in:

  • ivory
  • stone
  • antler

Animals or genre scenes, with a folk art flavour, are common subjects. The Inuit carvers of Repulse Bay also depict mythological subjects in their art.

The artists of the Repulse Bay area have created a workshop of artists and craftsmen specializing in carving Inuit art on the Arctic Circle. The workshop is called the Aivilik Arts Society . Art created at the workshop is sold year round from the community work space. Locally produced art includes:

  • soapstone
  • marble carvings
  • jewelry
