Abstract art is not everyone's cup of tea.
There are art lovers who do not enjoy the idea of interpreting the message being expressed by an artist in his work.
Pits makes it easy for us.
On Guard is an engaging narwhal who is both abstract and realistic.
The details of the tusk, the fins and the face are realism.
The chunkiness of the body and the tail melting into the rock is more abstract.
Pits has placed, On Guard on his tail, standing and brandishing his tusk/sword.
His apple green stone is exuberant and exciting.
Do you have a narwhal in your collection? Or are you looking for a less traditional Inuit sculpture as a gift?
