Inuit art: Bird

Community: Cape Dorset, NU 1/22
Museum quality Sculpture!
His Majesty is a majestic Ptarmigan perched on high, surveilling his kingdom.
The Ptarmigan is a game bird from the grouse family and is the official bird for Nunavat.
Kipanek is a Cape Dorset artist.
The Cape Dorset style is realistic with a bit of humour thrown in for good measure.
His Majesty is a deep rich brown dappled with gold.
So warm and rich. The high gloss finish attracts the light and charges the carving with energy.
Although His Majesty is a small sculpture, I consider it a Museum quality carving.
