Alice Evaglok



stone, wood, skin, string, unsigned, circa 1970, Slight wear to hoop drum, backed with clear adhesive tape. Overall very good condition.

Please contact the specialist for further condition information.

4 x 2.5 x 1.5 in — 10.2 x 6.1 x 3.8 cm

Private collection, Hamilton, ON

A beautifully wrought figure characterized by fine detail and symmetry in form. The drummer’s high pointed kamiks draw the eye though the composition and up to the peaked shoulders of the figure. Grayish-tan stone burnished on the protruding features is offset by the warm tones of the gut and wood drum.

While Evaglok is known to have produced single and multi-figure drumming scenes such as an example sold by Waddington’s on November 5, 2012, lot 193, the present figure is notable for its superior refinement in carving and boldness of form.
