Artist of the moment….Lucassie Ikkidluak

 

 

Lucassie Ikkidluak is an Inuit artist from Kimmirut, Nunavut Territory, Canada born in the year 1949. Ikkidluak is renown for his work with the musk ox. For his mediums the artist works with serpentine and antlers for the most part.

price range information: Works range from $1,500 to $8,000.

Ikkidluak began carving in the late 1960s. He learned to carve by watching other artists.

Brothers and sisters are artists too.

Love his interpretation of the musk ox, mainly for the way he portrays its hair, it show lots of movement.  One work is titled Wind Swept Musk Ox.
