I LOVE this Muskox.

You probably know by now that I am particularly fond of all Muskoxen.

BUT this Uttaq Muskox delights the Modernist in me.

So what exactly is a Modernist sculpture?

Modernism rejects the realistic depiction of subjects.

The shapes, colours and lines of the work are innovative and experimental.  This means there is a tendency toward Abstraction. 

In summary, the piece can look like, well, anything.

Look at this beauty's head.  Does it look like a large piece of steel? Like an anvil? .

The lines of the head, neck and back hump are exaggerated.  They culminate in what looks to be a mountain top. 

The point is, in Modern sculpture, realism is out; experimentation is in!

This Muskox is magnificent.

Do you have a place for him?
