Carvers in Ulukhaktok are known for creating intricate works of art with specific care and attention to detail. Many years ago, muckox horns and bones were carved to make tools. Today, artists use horns and bones to create unique and beautiful carvings.

Along the Arctic coast, muskox horn is a renewable material available to carvers. The natural sinuous curve of the horn makes it a popular medium to create beautiful bird sculptures, such as geese and Sandhill cranes with long graceful necks. When finely polished, the horns have a warm translucent glow.

This carving is a Muskox Horn Sandhill Crane on a Muskox boss base by Inuit Artist Dan Joss. It measures 6" x 8 3/4" x 3 1/4". Carving comes with Artist biography card.
