Magnificent carving!  Museum quality sculpture!

I saw this piece, and held my breath for a few seconds.

This is my visceral response to the rare combination of both beauty and genius.

Every Kuksuk carving I have seen has been dramatic, stunning in its execution and heart stopping.

The colour of the stone is a showstopper.  The stone is rich, warm, complex, and the perfect selection for this piece.

I see a protective regal bird pulling on the hood of the Inuk's parka, in a loving gesture to cover his head while he sleeps.

A very maternal/paternal gesture.

Or perhaps the Inuk is injured and needs care.

The face of the Inuk could be its own sculpture. 

Stunning.

How do you interpret Caretaker?

I strongly believe that one day this Kuksuk carving will find its way into a museum.

Imagine if you had it in your home or office and you could love and admire it every day?
