Note: Considerable in size and intensity, this work by John Kavik speaks to the stark and resilient course of his repertoire. Working with very durable stone and modest tools, Kavik’s carving method reveals to us the perseverance and dedication to make such a sculpture. Kavik chose the human figure as the prevailing theme in his art. Standing Figure is an excellent example of this.
