Pits' has decided to carve Kane in a primitive style.
Primitive art is admired for its simplicity, sincerity and expressive power.
Kane has a sweet and innocent disposition.
Perhaps Pits wanted the viewer to see this narwhal as a juvenile.
Many narwhals carvings are presented as dueling males or mother and child duos.
This childlike narwhal is unconventional.
And unconventional is exactly the right description for Pits Qimirpik, too.
