Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Piece!
NOTE** Sadly, one of Inuit carving's prominent figures recently passed away (spring 2020). When I heard the news, I was shocked and saddened. Joamie Ipeelee (1963-2020) I knew Joamie very well. He was a good friend and superb carver and I will miss him .Just before Joamie passed away, I received several of his muskox.
It is with great pride that I can now present these Ipeelee sculptures.
My clients are thoroughly infatuated with muskoxen. There are never enough of them it seems.
Joamie’s muskox sculptures are not large or overpowering. Instead they are reminiscent of the beast itself....impressive and strong with a gentle soul.
This majestic muskox is one of my favourites.
I am so enchanted with the look on his face...calm, all knowing and for some reason, he looks a bit chagrined!
This is Joamie's signature style for his musk ox. Dramatic colours, exaggerated back humps and small heads and horns with endearing facial features.
These pieces of Joamie’s art will be valuable treasures as they bring joy and happiness to their owners.
I had high esteem for Joamie Aipeelee.
His absence will be felt for a long time.
