Note: Seepee is the son of Nuveeya and grandson of Ennutsiak. Seepee was obviously influenced by his father’s work. Both father and son are accomplished carvers who have excelled at portraying musk oxen. This work is a fine example of Seepee’s command of the subject, its form swells to approximate the real mass of a musk ox’s form.
