Sculpture / Balanced Rock Art / 2016: Reconciliations


'The Inuit Goddess of the Sea'.
Sedna and her father, in a large skin boat, were on their way home after a hunt, when a storm arose, threatening to capsize the overloaded boat. The boatmen decide that to lighten the load they must throw the daughter overboard. When she tries to climb back into the boat, her father cuts off her fingers, which became seals in the sea. She tries again and he cuts off her hands, which become walruses. She tries again, but her father cuts off her forearms, which transform into whales.
Cast out of the boat for good, she becomes Sedna, "Goddess of the Sea" and is half-woman and half-fish. Sedna is said to hold sea animals entangled in her hair, only to be released when she is appeased by offerings.
