Since Inuit art carvers tend to choose subjects they are familiar with, the family theme is an important area for them. Inuit families are often portrayed doing everyday things around the camp. Here are some really nice Inuit carvings with the family theme with both individual and multiple person pieces.

As expected with any family theme, many Inuit art carvings will depict parents with their children.
Sometimes Inuit women are shown using an Inuit tool called an 'ulu' which is a knife with a curved blade. This Inuit knife is often used in cutting up game after the hunters bring them back to camp. Here are two Inuit carvings below which show women holding ulu knives.
In many of the Inuit family pieces, one can almost feel the love that is portrayed between family members.
Of course, a collection of Inuit art with families would not be complete without at least one piece showing an Inuit mother with her baby in the hood of her parka such as the carving below.
Inuit carvers are producing some stunning Inuit art these days. Imagine displaying such a piece in your home. See Inuit carvings or Inuit art prints at very affordable online prices at Free Spirit Gallery.
