Legends

Nipikti the Old Man Carver

Alootook Ipellie

The Inuit Co-operative Federations play an important part in life in the North. In some settlements in the North people rely on them for everything from water delivery and garbage disposal to the buying of carving for resale in the South. This story by Ipellie, which first appeared in Nunatsiaq News, gives some idea of how ritualized buying day at the Co-op has become for many old Inuit carvers.

Nipikti was now an old man and took three times as long as any young Inuk to get from one point to another. Almost every week, he would get up from his small carving studio at home and start walking out to the Co-op where he sold at least a half a dozen carvings he had finished during the week. He hung the bag of carvings over his shoulder and started out the door, his walking stick leading the way for him.

“This is the day I will get the upper hand of the deal with the Co-op manager. I have no doubt that he will fall in love with the carving I finished today,” he said as he closed the door behind himself.

On the way to the Co-op, Nipikti would stop several times to rest his tired old legs by sitting on the same rocks he had sat on for the last twenty years or so.

“Ahhh! Hi, Ojagajaak, it feels good to rest on you,” he would say to the first rock, as if the rock was an old friend of his. “These legs of mine are a little weaker than last week, so I will have to sit on you for an extra five minutes if you do not mind.”

There he sat to rest on Ojagajaak and looked across the land where he had lived as a young man. That is the place where he had hunted the good animals of the land. That is where he had taken care of his wife and family when they were growing up. “Those were good times of the past,” he thought, “times when carvings like these were toys and tokens to us Inuit.”

He got up slowly and continued on to the Co-op where he would get the money to support his family. The Co-op was still quite far away.

“If I had my way, I would prefer to carve the stones and ivory to make toys for my children, and hunt the animals like I used to. I wasn’t such a bad hunter in those days,” Nipikti said to himself.

“I never thought I would be living off the very carvings I used to make only to keep my children happy.”

Nipikti finally came to the rock where he sat to rest the second time along the way to the Co-op and said, “How are you today Ojagakaluk? I have come again to rest on you. I am an old man now, you know.”

He sat on Ojagakaluk and took enough rest there to make it to the next rock. “I shall see you again on my way back. Just make sure the bulldozer doesn’t push you under before then,” Nipikti shouted back to the second rock as he slowly started walking on.

When he came to the third rock, he sat down and said, “You know, Ojagakutaaq, you are probably the most comfortable rock I have ever sat on in my life, I must say I will certainly miss you the day they remove you from this spot to make way for the new road. You have been a good rock to me and I must thank you in case they start building the road while I am at the Co-op.”

He then got up to walk the last leg of the trip to the local Co-op and said to himself that it was time to think about how much he would persuade the Co-op manager to pay him for his carvings. Especially for the good one he finished earlier that day.

“I should be able to sell the good carving for $150 easily,” he said. “I’m sure there isn’t any other carving this week that was done any better than this one.”

When he got to the Co-op, Nipikti took the six carvings out of the bag and laid them on the desk for the manager to look at.

The manager picked up the carvings one by one and looked them over carefully. When he came to the carving Nipikti had done that day, he immediately offered Nipikti $120 for it.

Nipikti stood leaning on his walking stick and counted on $150 as planned. Nipikti knew by experience that the carving was worth that much or even more, “$150,” he said.

The manager looked up at Nipikti’s face, then picked up the carving in question and mused over the fine detail of the work Nipikti had done. “Okay,” he finally said, “I’ll give you $130 for it.”

Nipikti looked at the manager’s face and thought about the last offer for $130. “If you think you are going to play games with me, you might as well be prepared to do it for the rest of the day. I am not going to play that long,” he said in Inuktitut.

The manager clearly understood that Nipikti was not about to change his original asking price of $150. He knew that the price was right for the carving. But he decided to try once more to buy the carving for less than that. “$140,” he said.

Nipikti just stood there and cleared his throat, then said for the last time, “$150″. And with that, he tapped the top of the desk with his right hand. It was a sign that he meant business.

At that moment, the manager decided to give up trying to persuade the old carver to say yes to what he wanted and agreed to pay the $150 he was asking for.

Nipikti had won the battle this time around. He took the money for the carvings he’d brought in and went out the door to begin his journey back home with his walking stick in hand and money in his pocket to support the family for the next few weeks. He looked across the land and saw that the three rocks where he sat to rest each week were still there. No one had started to build the road yet. And he just smiled and said to himself that it was good.

I had better make sure that they do not bulldoze my rocks away. The way I see it, I am sure to win my case over that too,” he said for the last time, and he slowly moved toward home where he would start the next carving.

Nipikti the old man carver lives on.

Building an Ancient Greek Coin Collection

Coins from Ancient Greece are some of the most sought after items for coin collectors around the world. Collectors take pride in the stunning edge-work on the coins. Portraits of leaders and Greek icons of a long ago time still carry their detail centuries later. Greek coin owners also can find enjoyment in the history and rarity of their collections, some coins date back thousands of years.

Museums around the world have vast collections of valuable and ancient Greek coins. The American Numismatic Society collection holds an impressive coin collection which features over 100,000 Greek coins. The Greeks would bury money in order to save. This results in new coins being unearthed regularly throughout the old Greek empire, lots of exciting opportunities for collectors.

Greek coinage can be divided into four distinct time periods, the Archaic, the Classical, the Hellenistic and the Roman period. Each era carries some noteworthy history and coins. Coins from ancient Greece tell the history of one of the world’s greatest civilization, spanning more than ten centuries critical to modern history. Coins were made of materials such as gold, electrum and bronze.

Many collectors would argue that the high standard of artwork on ancient Greek coins was never duplicated by another civilization. Even after thousands of years the coins still carry striking artwork. Coins from the Sicilian area (fifth through third century BC) are often recognized for their artwork, while other experts believe coinage from the Hellenistic monarchs to be high points in Greek coin artwork. Both periods coins can carry strong values.

Symbols on the coins varied from region to region. Coins found in today’s Afghanistan will vary greatly from coins unearthed in Athens. Images of Rhodes, Nike, Thebes and many other storied figures are stamped in coins.  The Greeks were one of the first civilizations to issue commemorative coins. These special coins were issued to celebrate a military victory, or an achievement such as a scientific discovery. In a time before newspapers, these coins served as a way to spread a political message throughout the civilization.

Collectors will be the first to say that Greek coins are different from any other ancient civilization. There are usually no dates or mint marks on the coins and the coins are rarer (and therefore usually more valuable). It’s fair to say that collecting ancient Greek coins will cost some money, but beginners can save by starting with lower cost bronze issues.  Purchasing coins of lesser grades is also a way to save money in the beginning. Auctions such our Toronto coin auction can be an excellent source for any type of Greek coin collection. There are lots of excellent books and online resources that provide information about starting an ancient Greek coin collection.

Coins were handmade with care, not machine minted like other civilizations. This makes every coin truly unique.

It’s important to focus your collection on coins that interest you. It’s best to have a couple of coins that you really enjoy, not a bunch of coin they don’t interest you.

Collecting ancient Greek coins opens the door to some exciting experiences. Each coin tells a story, allowing you to explore the history of one of history’s most important and fascinating civilizations. There are coins that fit the needs of both new and experienced collectors.

At the Auction Network, we too are coin lovers. We take a lot of pride in the great selection of ancient Greek coins we offer. These coins are featured regularly in our weekly online and live auctions. We look forward to seeing you at the auction!

Some Interesting Facts About Inuit Art

Sedna myth of the Igloolik region

A girl would not take a husband, and at last her father in anger said that she would take a dog. One night a dog came in and took her as a wife.

Sedna - Inuit ArtWhen the girl became pregnant, the father isolated her on a small island, but the dog swam over to join her. It would swim in from time to time with the pack saddle to get meat from the father. The girl bore a litter – some dog children, some children in human form . One day, feeling sorry for her, the father loaded the dog with stones, concealed with meat on top. When the dog swam out, he sank and drowned. Then the father used to take the meat over to the island.

Next the angry daughter told her dog children to attack their grandfather’s kayak, but he managed to escape back to the mainland. He dared not go to the island anymore. Now in need, the girl put her dog children in a boot setting three straws for masts, and they drifted out to sea to become the ancestors of the white man. She put her human form children in the additionnal outer sole of a boot and sent them drifting to the land to give rise to the Chipewyan Indians. Then she returned home to live with her parents once more.

One day while the father was away hunting, a kayak arrived and a fine big man called the girl out to go off with him; which she did. Stopping by an ice float en route, the kayaker got out and removed his sun goggles, whereupon the girl burst into tears for the man was punny, having only been sitting tall on a high seat, and had ugly eyes, a northern fulmar in human form. They went on to the bird’s sealskin tent where they lived together and had a child.

But her sorrowing father set out in a boat to look for her and arrived one day while the fulmar was out hunting. He took her away in his boat. The fulmar, in bird form, caught up and swooping close it raised such a storm with its wings that the boat nearly capsised. In fear the father threw the girl overboard to her husband, but she clung to the gunwale. So he chopped off her first finger joints, and they bobbed up in the water as small seals. Again she grasped the boat’s edge, so the father hacked off the next finger joints which became bearded seals. Still the girl hung on, and the last joints were cut off, forming the walruses .Then she sank to become a spirit, the mother of the sea beasts. The father got home, but in remorse he laid down at the water’s edge under a skin, and the tide swept him out to join his daughter and the dog in a house at the bottom of the sea.

THE INUIT DRUM DANCER

Like people everywhere, the Inuit have songs for sad times and happy, for the end of a good hunt, to mock enemies and to greet friends. The human voice “throat music” is the primary musical instrument. Also, a flat, circular caribou skin drum, filled with pebbles provides a rhythmic accompaniment for these delightful tunes.

To this day, proud Inuit gather around village fires for heart warming singing and dancing. It is an exciting and fulfilling part of Inuit life loved by everyone in the village.

THE INUKSHUK

In the language of the Inuit; inukshuk means “One that looks like a person”. The inukshuiit are erected from stones to resemble a human figure. (Inukshuiit is the plural of inukshuk).

Inukshuk - Inuit Art

Long before the Inuit had access to rifles and ammunitions, inukshuiit played an important role in hunting caribou . The traditional hunting method would be to erect a series of inukshuiit in a funnel shaped pattern narrowing to a dead end on a hillside. The hunters would hide behind the inukshuiit armed with their bows and arrows. The women and children would herd the caribou towards the hunters by waving hides up and down to create loud noises, enabling the hunters to move behind the herd.The inukshuiit would also double as landmarks or cairns (stone piles) identifying the locations of caches of stored meat.

Today the inukshuk is used predominantly as a landmark. They can be found scattered across the frozen land. An inukshuk can be spotted from miles away and seasoned travelers can use the inukshuiit as navigational aids.

BAFFIN ISL.

Baffin Island is an Arctic wilderness located in extreme northeast Canada. The island’s northeast coast faces Greenland across the Davis Strait. Its deeply indented coast fronts a tangle of spectacular glacial and ice-capped mountains. There are towers, spires and pyramids of rock and ice, with sheer and overhanging great rock walls. The rock is primarily granite, which provides excellent climbing.

Most of the finest peaks are located on the Cumberland Peninsula, at the head of the South Pangnirtung Fjord. Much of the area is included within Auyuittuq National Park, and is accessible from Pangnirtung, a small coastal Eskimo (Inuit) settlement that is increasingly catering to tourists. From here, access to the mountains is by boat, dog sleds, float-planes or ski-planes, depending on ice and weather conditions.

The best climbing is June through August, during which the rock is relatively snow-free, and a few weeks of fair weather are possible. Early in the season, daylight is limited, and snow and glacier conditions may require skis or snowshoes. The highest peak of Baffin Island is Tête Blanche (7,074 ft./2156 m). However, perhaps the most famous is Mount Asgard (6598 ft./2011 m).
