**Jonasie Faber SIGNATURE Muskox Circle carving
Magnificent Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
Jonasie Faber is a Master Inuit carver from Greenland who now resides in Canada.
Unlike many of our Canadian Inuit artists, Jonasie has travelled widely but still carves in a fashion that reflects his Inuit culture.
His carvings are meticulously detailed with a primitive but sophisticated style.
Stalking bears and muskox are two of his preferred subjects.
This is a unique and beautiful arrangement of muskox forming a circle.
When Muskox are threatened they form a circle to defend the herd.
The light green coloured stone with warm brown high lights is refreshing and spirited.
This Muskox Circle is a timeless piece that could easily find its way into an Art Museum.
Jonasie's carvings have been sold by Sothebys, Waddingtons and New York’s large auction houses.
I have only seen a few Muskox Circles in my years as a Curator. This is a unique subject matter in Inuit carving.
