Description

This little Snow Bunting by Killiktee Killiktee  from Cape Dorset is a study in perfection.  The execution of the Snow Bunting has all the details that one would normally expect in a larger carving. The stand, the frozen instant before take-off, the inquisitive head to the side, such a small but great treasure.

Killiktee is showing his talents to the max as can be expected from someone who comes from a long line of artists starting with his father, Shortie Killiktee. His grandparents on his mother’s side, Kopapik Ragee and Arnirnik Ragee were prominent Cape Dorset artists and his biological brothers are well known carvers, Toonoo Sharky, Napachie Sharky and Allasuaq Sharky

This little Snow Bunting by Killiktee  Killiktee is a real treat.

Biography Killiktee Killiktee

KILLIKTEE KILLIKTEE

September 15, 1987

Killiktee Killiktee comes from a long line of artists starting with his father, Shortie Killiktee. His grandparents on his mother’s side, Kopapik Ragee and Arnirnik Ragee were prominent Cape Dorset artists and his biological brothers are well known carvers, Toonoo Sharky, Napachie Sharky and Allasuaq Sharky

Killiktee started carving when he was 12 years old. His first carving was a seal. He was paid $20 for the piece and he was very proud of the money he earned.

“I learned how to carve by watching my brothers Toonoo Sharky, Napachie Sharky and Allasuaq Sharky working on their carvings. I enjoy carving different types of animals, especially bears and eagles.”

Killiktee is also an accomplished draughtsman and a couple of his drawings have been translated into limited edition prints.
