Marking many Arctic ridge tops are human made stone figures called “inukshuks”. They are way-finding symbols for native people and historically were used to drive caribou along certain routes. This caribou uses the inukshuk as a convenient scratching post. This is a photo of the clay model in progress. “High up in the Arctic” is a piece that is very personal to Rick. In 2009, on a hunt in Nunavut Territory, Canada, he was lucky enough to harvest a beautiful Arctic Island Caribou bull that officially scores 416 SCI points to become the new world record. At the 2010 SCI convention in Reno the rack was panel scored and beat the old record by 29 points. And to honor the event, the caribou bull depicted in the bronze “High up in the Arctic” bears a replica of the set of antlers of Rick’s new world record trophy. Each piece, in the limited edition bronze series, entitled “High up in the Arctic”, will unofficially be marked as one of forty-eight as befitting a new world record. It will also have an official foundry serial number. This sculpture is 18 inches long and 15″ tall. It is mounted on fine walnut wood.
