It is difficult not to be gobsmacked by the sheer beauty of this sculpture!
Simply put, these graceful birds were carved with extraordinary skill and sensitivity.
Stan Ruben, who created this work, bestowed on it a high degree of naturalism;
he gave these glorious creatures the breath of life. This sculpture is a labour of pure love.
Ruben has synthesized the salient features of the muskox horn in this piece. The composition is aesthetically pleasing and super charged with emotion. The birds’ faces are beautifully framed by the brilliant electric and softly undulating plane of the pinkish red muskox horn. Precariously perched on their rock, Ruben has mated these lovebirds in graceful posture for eternity.
You can’t help falling in love with this exultant carving!
