Toona Iquliq was born in 1935 near Baker Lake, where he lived and worked. He had been carving for over 40 years, and his works can be found in major collections such as those at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and the National Gallery of Canada. Toona’s wife Sarah is a carver and textile artist, and their children – Johnny, Louie and daughter Camille – are well-known carvers as well.
While Toona was recognized mostly for his rounded carvings of people, figures such as muskox, birds, and polar birds are also characteristic.
Since the 1960s, Toona took part in many exhibitions across North America and the United States, and across Europe, in Belgium, France, Germany, and England.
