Masterpiece Carving! Magnificent Movement!

How does an artist manage to take multiples of the same subject (like these char fish) and arrange them in a pose that is artistic and humorous?

Of course, Kakee is from Cape Dorset and the Dorset style is to carve realistic subjects and give them a bit of an edge with a sense of humor.

This piece depicts a school of cheerful and beautiful Arctic char fish (with inlaid eyes) "standing around" as a group of friends, hanging out and perhaps ordering some food!

Isn't that what friends do? Particularly "hip" friends. Share food and ideas?

This is the story Kakee tells me with these stunning yet comical fish. 

I  have seen many schools of Arctic char and there is something extraordinarily freeing about watching their movements to and from the mouths of the Arctic rivers. 

This would be an amazing gift for the fisherman or sportsman in your life..
