This work perfectly conveys John Kavik’s characteristic minimalism.  His unique style of carving in no way diminishes the strong emotive properties of this piece.  Easily one of the largest works on record by the artist, this piece has mass in addition to height which lends to its inherent expressiveness. John Kavik's body of work includes several portrayals of the solitary male figure. This work, with its roughly formed features, expresses a sense of thoughtfulness or dismay.

Estimate: $15,000—20,000
