Pits told me that it is not often he comes across serpentine stone of this color. He will get it sometimes only when he goes to his campsite a couple times a year. This is one of two owls that he ever made in this color. It is very striking to the eye and adds much warmth and brilliance to the room.
What I can also say about this carving is thats its directly from Pits Qimiripik himself. He is the most famous Inuit artist on the planet for owl carvings. His owls are collected in Ottawa's national museum of fine arts. He is among the 3 elite Inuit artists in Canada and has exhibitions that have toured all over the world. His owls are valued very highly.
