This is a stunning and unusual piece for Pudlalik Shaa to so who is an acclaimed artist for his dancing goose carvings. This Muskox is done in a brilliant dark stone with a smooth and silky finish which gives it much finesse and refinement to the eye.
What I like about this piece is that it is a muskox and is done in a different style from other muskox I see from other artists. The dark stone is very striking to the eye and this piece really pops when presented as a centrepiece.
This stunning sculpture comes with an Igloo Tag (Certified of Authenticity), it is also sighed by the artist.
The carving is completely perfect!
"…He learned by watching the generation of carvers who, like his father, used axes to work on their pieces. Pudlalik still uses an axe on occaision, though he also uses more modern tools. He has incorporated elements of the dynamic fluid line of his fathers' work into his own sculptures."
