I was browsing through the National Gallery of Canada's website today and came across this antler carving which has floored me in its grace and sense of spirit. The structure of the antler has been retained yet shows a beautiful, flowing narrative. That's my take at any rate :rolleyes:

The website is http://cybermuse.gallery.ca/cybermuse/show...iat/index_e.jsp

 

an icon at the bottom will lead you to several works of bone and antler. This is selection #3

 

Here is the label information:

Jackoposie Oopakak

Nunali

c. 1988-1989

dark green stone, antler, sinew, bone, steel and black inlay

113 x 73.6 x 95.4 cm
