Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
Titan is a jaw dropping electrified green colour.
The light gleams off every surface of this stunning carving.
But the prize winning feature of this muskox has to be the etched white fringe that hangs from the bottom of Titan's coat particularly his long thick beard!
I am so taken by this adornment that I find myself staring at each strand of hair.
Titan is a large muskow with the requisite shoulder hump. large rump and majestic headpiece (his horns and mantle crossing his forehead).
From prehistoric times to the present, muskoxen have provided the Inuit with meat, warm sleeping robes and horn used to manufacture weapons, tools and artistic carvings.
The Inuit have a deep spiritual connection to this animal.
Killiktee honours this deep bond.
Titan's posture is simple and powerful.
It resembles the style of the older great master carvers.
This is a style that has longevity.
