Community: Cape Dorset
For his age, Qaumagiak is considered by several of his peers to be the most skilled carver in Cape Dorset. His style is naturalistic, with an emphasis placed on movement and precision. Qaumagiak is perhaps best known for his lovely owl creations, but as this elegantly streamlined walking bear shows, his stone sculpture was of superb quality as well. This poignant sculpture is reminiscent of Peter Parr's famous walking bears and in all likelihood was a mentor and teacher to Qaumagiak.When I saw this piece, I made no hesitation in taking it. It is that beautiful. There are a few clients I already know who are going to Love and want this piece.
