**Pitseolak Qimirpik SIGNATURE Eagle carving
Spring Training is a glorious combination of scintillating colour and precision carving. Pits only carves a few of his SIGNATURE Eagle with Fish sculptures each year. This is a sculpture that requires years and years of carving experience because its balance must be perfect. For these reasons, I have made Spring Training a CURATOR"S CHOICE.
Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
Pits' Signature Eagle with Fish carvings are the most difficult to obtain in the Inuit carving world.
I would give his Eagle with Fish series the "Sculpture with the most Meticulous Details" award.
Then the extreme vertical position of the Eagle requires the artist to balance the piece absolutely perfectly.
This is an engineering feat that very few carvers could accomplish.
And finally, this is simply a stunning, awe inspiring art piece.
Pits's seldom carves this subject in such a large size (17"). If you have ever yearned for one of Pits' Eagles, this is THE one to have.
