Its very interesting to see the level or realism depicted in Kavik’s work with the face. Where as most Inuit sculptors emphasize movement and positive and negative spaces, Kavik also works seems to represent an artist that had studied at a major university or academy of study.

Part of major exhibitions in the United States, Canada, and Germany.
