In this rather rudimentary piece, the artist carves out the subtle nuances of this "owlman" transformation which later iconifies it into a masterpiece carving of nostalgia and timelessness. Can be interpreted in both traditional and contemporary, the simple lines and beautiful stone render this as a stoic masterpiece.
One of Sallit’s greatest and most respected sculptors, Ningeocheak’s experimentation and use with different subject matters have helped establish his community as a prominent region for this style of art. This Owl man has become a favoured one.
