World famous carver Lucassie Ikkidluak has recently sculpted three of his iconic muskoxen just for our gallery!
Lucassie has not carved in three years because of health concerns related to his stone dust exposure. I expect his future carving will continue to be limited.
I have been waiting for this day for a very long time.
These muskoxen are three of the nicest pieces that I have ever seen from Lucassie. Every description you can imagine applies: majestic, exquisite, spectacular.
Lucassie’s muskoxen cannot be beaten.
Because they have become increasingly rare, art enthusiasts are always searching for the next Lucassie muskox.
That moment has arrived. Now is the time to make your choice.
Happily, these sculptures have also become increasingly valuable. Five years ago, the market value for Lucassie’s muskoxen were one third the price of what they are today.
Five years from now, the market value will again double or triple.
Translation: a piece that was $5000 five years ago is worth $15,000 today AND in another five years could be worth $30,000-45,000.
Welcome to the world of prestigious art. It is my honour and luck that Lucassie has chosen only my gallery to receive these three large beauties.
The carvings are new and signed by Lucassie. They come with the Igloo Tag of Authenticity.
