Kluane, pronounced “Kloo-wah-nee”, is a national park lying on the western edge of the Yukon Territory of Canada. Combined with the Saint Elias Wrangell complex just across the border in Alaska, it makes up one largest wilderness parks in the world. Containing Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan, and the largest non-polar ice fields in the world, it is one of the most spectacular pieces of true wilderness left in the North America. It is also home to a fairly dense population of Dall sheep. 

Roxane and I visited this park three years ago. We were able to see many sheep, and especially fortunate to get very close to and spend an extended amount of time with a large band of mature rams. Among them was one that was truly a sight to behold. His horns were especially long, with beautiful flare and hook. I don’t normally use such an exceptional specimen for a subject in my art, but his horn twist combined with the line continuing down through his neck, reminded me of the logarithmic spiral found throughout nature. I decided a bust was the perfect way to convey the beautiful design found within this incredible animal. Every time I look at it, I am reminded of a great day spent afield. With the glacial winds buffeting the cliffs, we spent several amazing hours among some Kluane Dalls.
