Inuit Art Blog / Lucassie Ikkidluak
The painstaking process I had to go through to acquire these exquisite Lucassie muskoxen, was like dental surgery without anaesthetic!
It is no secret that it is very difficult to acquire the iconic pieces of Canada's great Master carvers. These carvers include Lucassie Ikkidluak, Pitseolak Qimirpik, Nuna Parr, and Ashevak Tunnellie. These experienced artists often carve a limited number of sculptures. And many of the other galleries are more than eager to acquire these gems. But, I persevered and fought tooth and nail and was finally rewarded with these unbelievably gorgeous creatures.
Is it possible that each new Lucassie muskox is more impressive than the previous?
Honestly, I have never had one of Lucassie's Muskoxen for longer than two months. Collectors are hungry for these "hot commodity" pieces. With each year, his pieces become more rare and more collectible.
Lucassie is one of Canada's premier Inuit artists and his Muskoxen are one of those rare pieces that every collector wants in their collection.
