Here is another extraordinary muskox horn sculpture.
Muskox horn is exotic smooth and silky.
Ookpik has used the entire half of a muskox headpiece (one of the horns) to sculpt this serene and graceful crane.
Hope is a large gorgeous bird who is sitting on the nest, incubating her egg.
The magic of this carving is that the features of the horn ( its curves and angles, the pastel pink hues and the scattered black areas) exactly conform into the shape and details of a crane!
As if it were meant to be.
Hope is regal. .
Ookpik's innovative spirit shines through in this eclectic carving.
I have never seen a stone nest with a Crane like this.
