A great Proud bird by the world acclaimed artist Mark Pitseolak from Kimmirut. All of his carvings are extremely gorgeous.
Mark Pitseolak is one of my favorite artists. I love his compositions and the glossy finish he adds to each of his carvings. His pieces are so smooth and slick, that they convey pure harmony mixed with sophistication. He prefers carving smaller figures as opposed to large ones. He enjoys directing more focus and detail into a smaller stone as it is much more manageable and scalable.
This is a very original bird sculpture, a real masterpiece. It is minimalistic by nature which is what I like about it. Very smooth and straight lines, with a simplistic approach. Very detailed and polished to a mirror shine. We've never seen any carvings similar to this one before.
