Dancing hare OR rap dancing hare?
When I first laid eyes on Rabbit, my foot started tapping to the beat.
Just like Rabbit!!!!
This is Pits’ genius.
How he can position a rabbit ( tilted head, leaning sideways on one foot, arms forward with “paws” extended to the sky)
And suddenly we find ourselves caught up in the music and the dance step.....
Suddenly, we are part of Rabbit’s bouncing vitality.
For a brief moment, we are swept away!
This is great art.
This is why humanity needs its art, why it needs to celebrate creativity.
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Pits Qimirpik.
He is gifted, visionary and a brilliant craftsman.
Imagine pairing Rabbit with one of the smaller dancing bears?? The happiness factor would skyrocket!
This amazing creature is signed on the bottom by Pits and comes with the Tag of Authenticity.
Pitseolaq Qimirpik is a young carver from Cape Dorset (born in 1986). Famous artist Kellypalik Qimirpik is his father.
Pits enjoys carving different subjects (dancing bears, muskoxen, people), but he is most famous for his dancing arctic hares that are always full of life and joy.
