Charlie Eyaituks niche are his owls. They are always carved in a very positive, harmonistic way which really puts the audience in a good mood. His owls are soft with beautiful curvatures and vividly etched eyes. I love the argillite stone he carves with (native to Sanikiluaq). It allows his carvings to take on a refined, smooth texture showing off soft wavy grains surfing across the stone.
The carving is completely perfect! Signed by the artist, comes with igloo tag.
