About the Mask

As Aliy is resting at Takotna and Ryne is making her way to McGrath, many people have asked about the artist who created the Spirit Mask. Artist Orville Lund of Bristol Bay created the mask to portray the union of the spirits of dogs and musher. Neat article about it:

So Fantastic, the video in McGrath was so wonderful with Aliy taking the time to autograph for that girl. She and the dogs look wonderful. Ryne looks like she is on her way to Takotna. Way to go Ryne. GO ALIY AND RYNE GO. Maureen W
