Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!

Pegasus,, Centaur, Unicorn . . .  these mythical horse creatures have played important roles throughout human history. Humans' love for horses is so deep that that horses have become part of our myths and legendsI have never seen an Inuit half man/half horse carving. For this reason, Centaur is a CURATOR'S CHOICE.

When I first saw Centaur, I was astounded... first with the inspiration of Kupapik Ningeocheak and then with the magnificence and importance of this piece!

Centaurs have the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse.

They possess the ability to speak as a human and have the power and speed of a horse.

Kupapik has not copied the image of the Greek mythical creature.

The Inuit influence is what makes Centaur a rare piece.

Indeed, this Centaur has a human right front leg and his head is more horse-like and less human.

BUT, this piece exudes the power and strength of a horse AND the intelligence of a man.

Ningeocheak honours both species with this incredibly beautiful carving.

I predict, that one day this piece will be held in a position of respect in an Art Gallery for all to appreciate.

For now, are you this Centaur's protector?
