Biografía del autor Solomon Awa was born in a sod house near Iglulik on November 2 1959. From a young age he was curious about everything around him. He learned to sew traditional items such as sealskins from his late mother Appia Awa. His late father Mathias Awa was an excellent carver especially with ivory and one time he made a harpoon from caribou antlers in one night! Solomon learned to carve from him.
