Caribou naturally have a lot of aesthetic qualities. They have a beautiful, long white mane, sweeping antlers, and disproportionately large hooves. Everything about them is exaggerated, creating a lot of drama and visual excitement.

Often, when doing a piece like this, I will start with a fairly detailed skeleton and work my way out. It allows me to get the movement loose and free, not stiff. That supple quality can be very elusive in sculpture.
