This is my absolute favorite piece in the gallery. The reason why is because it effortlessly flows from head to tail. The color is a gorgeous dark stone with beautiful veins glazed throughout. It is a sizeable piece, thus making it visible in any room. I love the movements of this char as it is very intense and life like.
Jaco has earned himself in the ranks as among one of the top five master carvers of this generation. His sense of motion, dynamics and movement are exceptional and a testament to the talents one must posses to be considered among the greats.
Jaco's pieces have toured world wide, have been included in countless publications, Inuit art journals, exhibitions and museums.
This is an Arctic Char fish. The gorgeous black stone set against the very dynamic movement are formidable combinations which make this an exceptional piece. Even though I have seen several char fish over the years, Jaco somehow manages to make this particular one its own. Quite unique, very modernist with a touch of minimalist style. The posture, facial expression and stone makes this iconic Northern sea creature the masterpiece that it deserves to be.
For the fishing enthusiast.
