This is an absolutely gorgeous caribou from a very remote Inuit community called Igloolik. Artists in Igloolik here have a unique style. They focus on creating sculptures to look as real as possible. The stone is rarely polished and they prefer a dry flat finish.
Esau is one of the top Inuit artists in the world for caribou sculptures. This particular caribou is personally our favourite, the most beautiful we've seen a long time.
There are beautifully engraved caribou pictures on the side which makes this carving very unique.
