Inuit art: Narwhal
Inuit Artist: Pitseolak (Pits) Qimirpik
Size: 6" long (plus 3" Tusk), 2.5" wide
Community: Kimmirut, NU
**Museum quality piece
NOTE ** Pits has carved two enchanting apple green Narwhals which would be a stunning addition to your collection as a pair. The Narwhals are facing each other with tusks "drawn", ready to fight over territory or more likely a female,
There are art lovers who do not enjoy the idea of interpreting the message being expressed by an artist in his work.
Pits makes it easy for us. This engaging narwhal is both abstract and realistic.
The details of the tusk, the fins and the face are realism.
The chunkiness of the body and the tail melting into the rock is more abstract.
Pits has positioned his narwhal on his tail as if he is standing and brandishing his tusk/sword. The apple green stone is exuberant and exciting.
Do you have a narwhal in your collection? Or are you looking for a less traditional Inuit sculpture as a gift?
Pits Qimirpik is a celebrated prize winning Inuit artist whose works are on display in the Canadian National Art Gallery in Ottawa and the WAG.
