    As long as we're paging @Mark London for KnutzKollect's print thread on the Art forum, can I also ask for a name ID on this stone bird?

    Thank you for the help.

    It seems to read Amittu. It is most likely from Sanikiluaq, Nunavut and is carved from siltstone. The artist is probably Isaac Amitook (1916-d).
