Sedna is the sea goddess who created marine animals in the mythology of the Inuit people. The Inuits depend mainly on the sea, an inexhaustible source, for their subsistence. Both feared and respected, Sedna helps bring balance to the world. This sculpture depicts a double image of Sedna, one above the other. In Inuit thought, this symmetry is linked to the idea of the dynamic balance that the sea goddess embodies.
