This winsome masterpiece of zen comes alive through the use of Qimirpik's treatment of the Greyish Serpentine stone. In short, its brilliance milks the audience’s outrage. The sculptural forms undulate softly, and the play of light, reflection and shadow is almost magical. This sculpture ranks as one of Qimirpik's most delightful works of art.
Qimirpik has earned himself a spot among the ranks of today's top master carvers like Damien Iqualla, Ruben Komangapik and others. His sense of motion, dynamics and movement are exceptional and a testament to the talents one must posses to be considered among the greats.
Canada’s TD bank (Toronto Dominion) proudly acquired several of Qimirpik's pieces in 2010. It remains in their permanent collection as a testament to Qimirpik’s willingness to risk and be innovative.
Pits has changed the Inuit art scene forever and he is recognized globally as a trailblazer. His Inuk themed pieces are done in such an animated and dynamic way. This is why they are in such high demand internationally.
