Simply put, this is a museum quality piece!
Carved with great skill and refinement, this sculpture brings to mind the work of Nunavut masters Jimmy Iqaluq, Paul Maliki and Manasie Akapaliapik.
The tenuous embroidery and visages of Qimirpik's owls have rendered his craft as the epitome of the highest order of Inuit art. Qimirpik's work is to be celebrated among the avant-garde circles of Inuit art. Solo works and publications by him have been adopted and praised worldwide.
This is a masterful owl by Canada's most world renowned artists for owls - Pits Qimirpik. Pits Qimirpik has numerous prize winning pieces on an international scale. His works can be found in Canada's national art collection in Ottawa.
The carving is signed on the bottom and comes with an igloo tag.
