I love these Gjoa Haven transformations.
Number 1 Because their style is so unique to Gjoa Haven that you immediately know when you see one, that THIS is a messenger from Gjoa Haven.
Number 2 Because these quirky little carvings encourage our inner art lover to come forward. What story does this sculpture tell?
Keknek's genius is his ability to motivate us to not just SEE, but to UNDERSTAND the carving.
I love the smooth silky black stone with its little deposits of copper and green.
Keknek is a gifted artist.
His transformations are unique to the Gjoa Haven region of the Arctic.
You will not see anything like these delightful carvings anywhere else!
