This page features Muskoxen, and can also include sculptures of some other four-leggeds from the Canadian Arctic including Caribou and Arctic Hare. Above you'll notice a specially-featured oil painting "Oomingmak On The Rise" by the noted wildlife artist Nancy Howe. We have this painting available in our Vermont gallery, and you can learn more about Ms. Howe and her available art by visiting her website www.NancyHowe.com.
The Inuit ("People" in their language of Inuktitut) are spread out across the top of North America - from the northern slopes of Alaska in the West, throughout the northern Canadian coastline and archipelago, to Greenland in the East. Those inside Canada number about 65,000. The art they create is as varied as the land and sea they call home, and the materials they are using. We look for pieces that reflect individual tastes and style, and we hope you enjoy what you see here.
As always, we encourage you to contact us with any questions or comments!

Muskox by Lucassie Ikkidluak. This figure was carved in the year 2000. It is a large piece and is impressive in bearing. The stone is of the lighter color serpentine associated with that of Markham Bay on Baffin Island. The dimensions are 14" long, 9.5" tall and 6.5" wide. Offered at a very fair US$10,000.00, this piece is a great investment for your collection of notable Inuit Art.
Lucassie Ikkidluak is the most famous of the few Innu artists who have depicted this animal, and his work is highly sought after. We have sold many of his now rare Muskoxen over the years.

It seems like this guy is about to scratch an ear, and for some reason everyone is compelled to do it for him. Go figure.
