Jonas Faber is an Inuit artist from Greenland who currently lives in British Columbia, Canada. He has a very original and recognizable style of carving. He also has a private source of stone: a soapstone quarry he discovered and works himself. When muskoxen face a common threat, they back up against each other in a circle. This sculpture depicts that behavior, in a beautiful green stone with lighter veins throughout. 15 1/2" x 14 1/2" x 3"
