Pretty certain it's a Musk Ox

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muskox

Interestingly it says they were introduced to Iceland in the 1930s, but did not survive.

Just an update. I sold this musk ox to someone in Iceland. I had it confirmed by her that it was a musk ox and that it was by Glit Pottery & it was a very rare piece. She has only seen one before, but she didnít say when!
