Inuit art: Muskox (Musk Ox)
Inuit Artist: Pitseolak Qimirpik
Size: 7.5" high, 3" wide, 5" tall
Community: Cape Dorset, NU
The enigmatic and whimsical movements of Qimirpik's dancing muskox have earned him acclaim internationally.
This compression of form releases animal and sculptural energy which bequeath playful personality and pungent character. The movements are vocal not only in terms of playfulness, but also innocence.
There is also a sense of visual tension in this muskox; the sculpture is perfectly balanced despite looking quite precarious.
This is gorgeous and substantial in size. This dancing muskox is done in a striking black marble stone. It has fantastic dancing movements and beautiful detailing throughout the stone.
This piece comes with an Igloo Tag (certified of authenticity) and is also signed by the artist on the bottom.
