This quirky friendly Dog Spirit captured our hearts immediately when seeing this for the first time. The beautiful inlayed eyes, and the gorgeous black stone have rendered this piece to be one of our all-time-favorite sculptures ever.
When I saw this piece for the first time, my jaw dropped. Qimirpik decided to try something new. This is the first series of Dog Spirit he's ever launched, and wow, it is absolutely sensational.
The Inuit absolutely adore their animals, in particular dogs and cats. In each community, their are packs of dogs roaming around town throughout the night.
The smooth facial expressions contrasting with the Black torso give this piece an intensity that warrants it to be in a museum.
One day when Qimirpik is old and grey, beautiful carvings like this will be worth so much more.
