Note** In the Small treasures categeory, This is one of the galleries most prized pieces. It is so different from any other smaller piece of Inuit art I have ever seen.
Pits has changed the Inuit art scene forever and he is recognized globally as a trailblazer. This intricate Inuk drum dancer is another spearhead carving in this genre.
The carving is stoic and opulent. The dark stone is uplifted by the terse lines and flawless symmetry of the sculpture. This Masterpiece howls with bountiful audacity and sashay. The facial features are permanently etched with joy reflecting the soul of this music lover.
The brilliance of the subject matter is indeed utilitarian verging on the abstract of modernism.
This Masterpiece is so different and so incredibly unique!!! Few collectors will ever own such a venerable and worthy spirit of the North.
This carving is new and in perfect condition. It comes with the Igloo tag of authenticity and is signed on the bottom.
