Ohito Ashoona Muskox

Cape Dorset’s Ohito Ashoona is well known for his bear carvings.He turns to other subject matters, broadening his repertoire. In this case, he has not only changed the subject matter; he has also taken a bold step in style.

This muskox, carved from green serpentine, is made in a semi-abstract blocky style, perhaps taking its shape more from the original stone than from the true shape of a muskox. The subtle details force us to examine the sculpture closely to fully appreciate its aesthetics.
