[PHOTO] Abraham Etungat, Bird of Spring

This casting of Bird of Spring by Inuit sculptor Abraham Etungat, known for his sculptures of birds with wings upswept, is a casting made in bronze from his original carving. Blogger Bill Andersen noted in 2016 that this particular casting is one of several made of the original “Bird of Spring”, produced by a foundation that wanted to spread Canadian art across the country. Ryerson University’s casting has at least two siblings, one bronze in Halifax and another bronze in Vancouver, with still another fibreglass copy in Calgary’s Connaught Park. NeaTO has a 2016 post going into more detail about the history of this particular casting.
