This study of the Arctic encompasses an ice core deep drill through time – the coldness of the region preserving death and forsaken objects for longer periods.  So here you have a juxtaposition of contemporary muskoxen grazing alongside the remnants of their ancestors.

‘The muskoxen grazing so placidly in the hills of the south and in the sedge meadows to the east, so resplendent with life, are perhaps descendents of these, whose white, dark-horned skulls now lie awry on the land.’
