This raffle has now ended. Congratulations to our winner Nick Logan! Big thanks to Ashoona Studios and everyone who purchased a ticket.

You could win this spectacular sculpture by celebrated Inuit artist Goota Ashoona! All proceeds go towards Inuit and Indigenous programs for youth at WAG-Qaumajuq.

Perfect for a large room or outdoor installation, Tattooed Woman (2021) is after an original drawing of Goota’s grandmother, renowned artist Pitseolak Ashoona. The drawing was translated into a print in 1963 for the Cape Dorset Print Collection and has become one of Pitseolak’s best known, an icon of Canadian art.

Valued at $10,000, painted aluminum on stone, approx 7 ft (length), 4 ft (height), 1 ft (width). Generously donated by Ashoona Studios.

Born in Kinngait, Nunavut, Goota Ashoona works out of Ashoona Studios in Elie, Manitoba. The multi-disciplinary artist carves primarily in soapstone and whale bone and has also produced wall hangings and traditional Inuit dolls. Ashoona was commissioned to create Tuniigusiia/The Gift, an outdoor sculpture supported by The Manitoba Teachers’ Society for the opening of Qaumajuq.
