Kananginak Pootoogook's muskoxen are legendary. He is to muskoxen what Pauta Saila is to dancing bears. Kananginak's muskox is compact, huddled against the wind, and displaying his magnificent coat. The motion in the coat makes you forget that this is carved from stone. Kananginak was not only a master carver, but also a mainstay of the Cape Dorset print workshop for decades, creating meticulously detailed portrayals of the birds and animals of Baffin Island, but also venturing into satire at times.
