Museum quality piece! Magnificent Movement!
Pitseolak will produce about six eagles per year.
The reason he makes so few, is that they are extremely difficult to make.
Pits is one of Canada’s most recognized Inuit carvers.
He is one of three elite Inuit carvers who have international status for their mastery.
His carvings are found in Canada’s national art collection in Ottawa and in exhibitions around the world.
Pits is renowned for his birds, especially his owls and eagles.
You are witness to the life and death struggle between eagle and fish.
We look up to the sky and for a split moment in time, we bear witness to the shared experience of the hunter and the hunted.
The scene is simple but potent.
The eagle is powerful and intense as he concentrates on holding onto the wiggling fish.
Strangely, the fish is serene and appears to emote a determined resolve to stay alive.
The lines and proportions of this carving are immaculate. The polish and color of the deep green stone are breathtaking.
It is very difficult for a gallery to acquire a Qimirpik eagle.
Honored and fortunate is the collector who acquires this masterpiece eagle and fish carving for his/her collection. Consider this sculpture as a gift for a milestone birthday or anniversary or retirement.
