The most frequently requested carving for our gallery are the iconic muskox by internationally claimed Lucassie Ikkidluak. Last time Lucassie carved his infamous muskox four years ago.
5 years ago, market value for his muskox were one third the price of what they are today. 5 years from now, it will again double or triple in value.
This particular muskox is within a series of three muskox that I acquired from him recently. It is one of the largest muskox he has ever attempted. In my opinion, it is also one of the nicest. The beautiful hump, the symmetry, detail and flow of the piece render this as a museum artifact.
The proportions are perfect. The stone is perfect. The symmetry is perfect. There are absolutely no defects in this piece. It is a perfect muskox, and it is one of his largest ever. I was lucky enough to be the only one in the entire world to get.
