Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Carving!
Pitseolak is the only Inuit artist in the world who carves with this rare pinkish soft limegreen stone.
Only once or twice a year will Pits carve one of his signature owls with this gorgeous colour.
Pits found the stone near his fishing camp which is quite remote from where he lives.
When I first saw this stone colour a few years ago I was gobsmacked!
Pits owls are internationally renowned and I believe his owls are the best owl sculptures among the Inuit artists.
When I saw this owl, I knew immediately it was a very special piece.
The collage of pinkish and green colors adds a sense of calmness and a glow to this stoic Owl. Look at the facial features with the open mouth and the tongue that appears to have been carved separately. How does he do that?
When you see this owl carving you immediately recognize it as being a Pits Qimirpik sculpture. THAT'S how iconic Pits' owls have become.
In addition to his owls, Pits Qimirpik has numerous prize-winning pieces on an international scale.
His works are found in Canada's national art collection in Ottawa, Ontario.
Now is the time to have this PINK-GREEN masterpiece in your collection on your mantelpiece.
