Jamesie Pitseolak unknowingly pioneered yet a new generation of Inuit carvers. Life in the North, although very traditional at times, has also adapted very much to Western society. The inspiration to craft subject matters that are everyday essentials for the Inuit will remain the legacy of Jamesie Pitseolak.
Influenced by Jamasie's amazing craftsmanship, young en carver, Ricky Jaw wanted to create a piece that describes the passion of today's Inuit youth. Speed, skidoo's, race cars and motorbikes. This beautifully crafted chopper captures the essence of wild enthusiasm.
The piece is so different and incredibly unique, but maintains its essential proportions and highly creative visage.
