The rawness of this piece and the wildness of the facial features make The General a CURATOR'S CHOICE.
Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
The intimidating razor sharp beak of Kakee's Eagle reminds us that this bird commands respect.
Hence his name The General.
Then, look at The General's incredibly muscular legs.
They melt into his wide powerful shoulders>
Kakee has carved a body for The General reminiscent of a fantasy beast like a dragon!
I can't recall ever seeing an Inuit eagle carving like The General.
Finally Kakee has the eagle's wings vertically stretched above his head but the wings tips meet like the sharp point of an icebreaker, destroying any obstacle in its way.
Kakee's has pushed beyond the limits of traditional realistic carving and given us a truly one of a kind treasure.
