Exhibition: Sikhirtya – Figures from Siberia
January 15 @ 11:00 am - January 29 @ 5:00 pm
Feheley Fine Arts is pleased to present an online show of small sculptures called Sikhirtya (little people) by Nenets artist Evgeniy Salinder. Like Inuit, Nenets are people of the circumpolar north (northwestern Siberia). The sculptures, standing between two to four inches tall and carved from reindeer antler, represent the “little people” from Nenets cultural stories – small, supernatural beings who were also skilled blacksmiths, jewelers, fishers, and hunters.
