My Year of the Ox print for a card exchange with Baren Forum. This is a 2 layer reduction on Kraft card stock. It depicts an arctic musk ox.
Given that these are hard times (pandemic, global warming, worsening economic and other disparities) the musk ox seemed a good species to celebrate 2021. They are wild animals that live in the harshest conditions. They live in herds and the strongest among them protect the weakest. We could take some inspiration from these noble beasts.
This is my 4th year participating in New Year's Exchanges with the Baren Forum for Woodblock Printmaking. Here are my prints from previous years' trades:
Year of the Rat, 2020
Year of the Pig, 2019
Year of the Dog. 2018
