Where are you from?

Melbourne, Australia

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

This is my first visit.  After seeing the Inuit art display at the AGO, I wanted to visit the MIA and see more.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I like the simplicity and fluidity of this piece; so simply and clearly a bear.
