Mark Tungilik, ᒪᑭ ᑕᒐᓕ

ANGEL


MARK TUNGILIK (1913-1986), E3-320, Repulse Bay
ANGEL, ivory, stone, ca. 1950, 2.25" x 1.75" x 1.75" — 5.7 x 4.4 x 4.4 cm.

Est. $800/1,200

Note: “Tungilik credits a Roman Catholic priest, Father Rivoire, with encouraging him to do miniatures. Father Franz van der Velde has also written of his own successful efforts in Kugaaruk in 1945 to get the artist to make a small bust of Christ. Thus frequent subjects such as angels and priests are a continuation of these early religious influences.”
From November 2008 Waddington Catalogue, Darlene Coward Wight
