“Kavik… is one of the most original of Eskimo artists, and he always works the way the spirit moves him. He works steadily and ‘professionally,’ his objects are made for sale , but this does not detract form his art. He makes things well, imaginatively and ingeniously. He is a real artist… All of Kavik’s carvings are inventions and discoveries of images and activities; they have balance without having bases; they are ingenious without being gimmicky; they are works of art and love.”
George Swinton, from “Eskimo Sculpture”, 1965
