We present a quantum theorical background of the existence of multi-variable link invariants, for example the Kauffman polynomial, by observing the quantum (sl(2,), ad)-invariant from the Kontsevich invariant point of view. The background implies that the Kauffman polynomial can be studied by using the sl(N,)-skein theory similar to the Jones polynomial and the HOMFLY polynomial.
