Inuit art: Owl
Inuit Artist: Kupapik Ningeocheak
Size: 7.5" high, 6.5" long, 3" deep
In this rather unusual piece, Ningeocheak utilizes the fascination of hypnosis and amniotic glare from the owl's charged pupils.
Carved with great skill and refinement, this sculpture brings to mind the works of Nunavut masters Jimmy Iqaluq, Pitseolak Qimirpik and Napatchie Sharky. The embodiment of the etched-in feathers coalesced into the pressed stone and electrically charged eyes transform this piece from rigid state, to life.
This carving is completely perfect. It comes with an Igloo Tag (Certified of Authenticity) and is signed on the bottom.
