“carved from limestone, he gathers limestone to carve—portrait of the artist”



This piece pretty much speaks for itself. I had wanted to bring together the old ways of making a kamitik (sled) with modern ways of making the individual pieces. At first I was planning to have a couple of spears and a kakivak (fishing trident), but after some thinking I decided to go with the stones from the quarry I use. As you know, many carvers find it a time-consuming and difficult task to acquire stone.
