Peter K. is quickly becoming the "go to" artist for the most charming and skilled renditions of life in the Far North.
Here is another extraordinary sculpture carved from muskox horn.
As a medium, muskox horn is exotic and eclectic.
The artist has capitalized on the salient features of the muskox horn (its curves, the pastel pink hues, and the smooth texture). The result is a composition that is not only charged with meaning but is aesthetically pleasing as well.
This piece is regal and proud. The bird has the heart of a king, standing with his long neck outstretched and his head cocked as if he is surveying his kingdom.
The bird's face is beautifully framed by the brilliant, electric, and softly undulating plane of pinkish-red muskox horn.
This graceful bird is protecting the nest against predators.
We can all relate to the plight of this majestic creature.
