Muskox horn is a medium often used by Inuit carvers.
It intrigues me because the markings are so essential in designing the piece.
How did Alikamik design the mouth on this distinguished fellow?
Or is Socrates' mouth simply the result of a random cut into the horn?
I love this character.
I have to say that Buddy's muskox design is unconventional.
Imagine having this bohemian sculpture with you every day.
What message is Socrates sending you?
Could it be "A wise man marches to the beat of his own drum"?
