Description

Either this Eagle by Kakee Ningeosiaq from Cape Dorset is taken a bow for a job well done, or he is watching us with curiosity from a perch high above, or maybe he is just doing what comes naturally: doing his job..

Kakee was born in Iqaluit but moved to Cape Dorset in 1993.  He began carving at the age of 16 and although he is self-taught, he also learned by watching other carvers.  His father, Ningeosiak Peter, and his mother, Parnee Peter were both sculptors in Cape Dorset.  Kakee’s grandfather, the late Jamasie Teevee was a well-known graphic artist.

In August, 2019 School of Fish, a large scale sculpture in bronze by Kakee was unveiled at the Royal Botanical Gardens as the newest addition to the Dan Lawrie International Sculpture Collection. The sculpture stands in the reflecting pool in front of the Turner Pavillion Teahouse. Have a look at Kakee’s Three Small Fish in our collection.
